Down At The Local

Down at the local suck-n-fuck,
time pole dances
a slow strip of past progress
while her newly literate patrons
peruse fifty shades of poorly written porn
and mutter to themselves,
"I knew it!"

Shades of social commentary on Fifty Shades of Grey for Kenia's Challenge at Real Toads

Well the whole thing is pretty darn attention-grabbing. But this, in particular, is well written and thought provoking:

"time pole dances
a slow strip of past progress"

Mary said...

Ha ha! 50 shades of poorly written porn indeed.

Brian Miller said...

lol...that is about it...surely....funny how certain books just hit at the right time and catch on even when they are not that well written...

Susan said...

HaHaHa--each line here has its little stinger, its gem of satire, but my favorites are lines 2-4:

"time pole dances
a slow strip of past progress
while her newly literate patrons"

"while her newly literate" aren't watching and, despite what they say, know nothing, see nothing, and have nothing to say! BRAVO!!

('course I have not read it, so what do I know?)

Hannah said...

Rugged and funny...great one, Mama!!

Sioux said...

The first line is a zinger, and just sets the stage for the rest.

I have not read it yet. Soooo, I get the impression you're recommending it? ;)

With wordplay and imagery this came alive. Loved this one!! :)

hedgewitch said...

You grasp the whole point of porn(hmmm...maybe not the best way to say that) and skewer it here.(also maybe not the best way to say that...) Loved it, MZ.

Buddah Moskowitz said...

Loved it (your poem, not the Fifty Shades of Green).

Beth Winter said...

Absolutely 50 Shades of Poorly Written Porn. Wonderful commentary.

Kerry O'Connor said...

Thank you for just coming right out and saying what the rest of womankind should be able to say, instead of: OOooooh, this book introduced me to an inner goddess I didn't know I had, and awakened me to the romantic possibilities of toxic relationships..

Vaishali Jain said...

"Her newly literate patrons," now there's a line for the ages! The local suck 'n' fuck? I was laughing out loud at this great social commentary. So hard to be profound and yet hilarious, but you did it! So glad to find you in the Garden. Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore
