The Bearing of Fools

Blind Idolization
by Scott Thomas Outlar

I read a poem
where someone was slobbering
on the President’s cock
just because he’s black
and that somehow supposedly makes him honorable.

I generally tend not to care
one iota about anyone else
or their opinions
because it usually has no bearing
on my life whatsoever.

For whatever reason, this piece of shit
idolization ceremony
disguised as a poem
made me want to vomit.
But I’ll leave that
to the fool
getting gagged
on the President’s jockstrap.


Scott Thomas Outlar survived both the fire and the flood – now he flows and fluxes with the tide of the Tao River while laughing at and/or weeping over the existential nature of life. His debut chapbook “A Black Wave Cometh” will be released in April through Dink Press. More of Scott’s words can be found on his blog
