Hi-Viz (by Scar Quilse and Elvis Voe)


By Scar Quilse and Elvis Voe

A liability

No ability

No control over his sexual proclivities

Morally defective


Instinctively deceptive

High visibility

This country is a racket

He thinks a yellow jacket

Makes him look like he can hack it

But he's absurd

a slimy little turd

knows some Latin words

High visibility

That helmet won't protect him

Once his party deselect him

And his family reject him

He'll be compelled

To die inside a cell

Before descending into hell

No steel toed boots

No hazmat suit

No substitute

He'll burn eternally


For the universe to see

High visibility
