    She flies in 2016 with a fleet of “monkeys spring from the mule.”


    Ready for the Wicked Witch of the West?

    by Raymond Nat Turner


    “We came, we saw—he died…a -ha-ha-ha, a-ha-ha-ha…”

    “We came, we saw—he died…a -ha-ha-ha, a-ha-ha-ha…”

    “We came, we saw—he died…a -ha-ha-ha, a-ha-ha-ha…”

    “We came, we saw—he died…a -ha-ha-ha, a-ha-ha-ha…”

    Cackling voice looped from a chamber in Koch Castle—

    Scary Godmother, of Albright, Iron Lady lineage readying

    Herself for the crown, Wicked Witch of The West, herding 

    Monkeys, white, black and Mexican, like Magi, Iceberg Slim Alumni ready to fly, ready apply her modus operandi, ready

    To lie, ready to cry freeze-dried tears like they did for Iceberg


    She needs monkeys concealing gauze history from

    Sunlight, she needs monkeys springing from the mule,

    Flying in formation terrorizing denizens with images of 

    Elephant stampede; she needs monkeys trained to rewrite 

    Her resume, monkeys who can ape prosperity preachers, 

    Slutty professors and hi-profile personalities on the tube, 

    Monkey poets, scribblers, scratchers and rappers to pen 

    Paeans to empire, monkeys to stitch fractured fairytales 

    With Misinformation, disinformation, half-truths and big lies— 

    Making Dr Goebbels dick rise ready or not like 

    An aborted Predator broom takeoff crashing and 

    Burning, may she, like the Iron Lady, Rust In Piece…
