Look At Your List And Shake Your Fist!

The cat was out and about once more when I heard that idiot's voice soar. Drazin? Gung? Ho? The Beyonder? Tarsier Man? Nope! You at the end of your rope? For it was that Riot Man dope. He was whining about everything from bags to soap.

Riot Man here,
All gather near,
And start to cheer,
Or simply peer.

Look at that list.
Now shake your fist.
The price is up,
With a smaller cup.

They look at you,
Think you have no clue.
What you gonna do?
Let the riot ensue.

The litre can shrunk,
By some pencil pushing punk.
The half empty bag,
Ordered by some hag.

The steal of deal,
Ain't real!
One big lie,
To get the buy.

Now you need two,
For what one used to accrue.
Sucking you dry,
Twice with their lie.

Eco-friendly my ass.
Working the gas.
Filling up the trunk,
Because they shrunk.

Strike a match,
Find a spoiled batch.
No longer with shine,
Looking divine.

The color has worn,
Into black and white porn.
Goading an action,
Promising same satisfaction.

Creating the cool.
Paving the drool.
One simple rule,
Bludgeon the fool.

Come second pass,
Herd the mass.
Continue to prune,
Noon to moon.

Create the tell,
Sucking dry the well,
With such hell,
Shrink and sell.

He had riled up all the shoppers and the store even called the coppers. I guess they did not like all the shrinking of food and such and how they charged more or just as much. The nut did have a point and spurted some round about facts as he got each nose out of joint. When I left he was still screaming sass and I just avoided the coppers from seeing my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  4. Please don't bludgeon anyone's foot. That just wouldn't be nice. At all...

    Some people really do have great messages,but they are lost in their extreme delivery. Ok, so servings have shrunk and prices went up. Do you really think the poor sap getting paid minimum wage to organize the carrots can really do anything for you? No, I don't think so. Go bother the big guy. Find headquarters and protest to the CEO. Sigh...

    1. Go tell that riotman guy
      He is the one upon high
      If he falls it could hurt their foot too
      So the cat will try to stop it from coming due..haha

      Yeah they tend to get caught up in their own ego
      When they let it flow
      As soon as they find people are listening to them a bit
      It's like some fire is lit
      And off they go
      Forgetting what it was they were yapping about in the first place at their show
      Obsessed with the power
      Letting the cheers shower
      From their brainless flock
      But I'm sure that is no shock
      Made me go on a rant once more
      You are good at making me do that at my shore..lol
      The big guy has 50 other big guys surrounding him
      And they may shoot Riot Man on a whim
      So he hides and picks on the carrot guy
      Or the guy/girl who bakes pie
      Or stacks the carts
      Maybe even scouts for Cracks at Walmarts..hahahaha

    2. LOL You love to rant!! Don't blame me ;) I just set the stage for your perfomance!! hahaha

      LMAO The poor wagon cart guy! Imagine, he's just pushing carts minding his own business when some crazy guy approaches him damning him to hell because of the tricky fine print on the back of a coupon!

      If I get ragged on by some rioter because of your overpriced Crack performance, I quit!!!!!!!

    3. LOL yes that I do
      The cat is just inspired by you
      Plus the stage lights you set up are so nice
      The can't will rant twice

      hahahaha oh that be too funny
      As some crazy guy ranted about money
      And prob has happened at walmart somewhere
      No doubt one near your lair..haha

      hahahaha they would rage
      Over any wage
      Because if they do
      You just give a whistle for the Crack nearest you
      And they'll go blind
      From such a behind..haha

      Sticking it to the man forever more
      Never would have guessed that
      With those penguins blinding the cat
      I guess I better stay one your good side
      Or you may say I lied
      And get a whole group protesting the cat
      We can't have that..haha

      Now I know where to go
      When protesting has to come due at my show
      Maybe if that one percent movement thingy had more Serb's involved with it
      They would have actually won something with their fit

    for the first time in 2 years, last week.

    3. I always go while he's at work
      so he never tags along to lurk!
      We've also mentioned the size of fast food stuff
      mainly sandwiches! It's no bluff!
      The Whopper used to be really big
      now it's the same size as anything at their gig.
      Same with a Filet-O-Fish
      you could fit four on a dish!
      But the prices have gone higher
      and they say 'value'..but are liers.

    At least cracks come in handy. If I want a group to have my back, it would be them! No body would mess with me.

  24. I think I read these rhymes different than most
    To me the meaning is too much price for the toast
    and things for sale that aren't worth their weight
    and what used to have ten ounces now only has eight.

    I read in this verse that consumers are taken
    and get less and less for a pound of bacon
    and the well is sucked by as one tries to shop
    and the steal of the day is just a flip flop.

    I may have missed meaning in this fine verse
    If I have I'm sorry I might have made you curse
    but poems can be taken every which way I guess
    the reader might be wrong, I will humbly confess.

    Have a good day, Pat.

    Smash an O-ring.

    Sorry, best I could come up with car-related.
