About Me

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).

"Hell, we're NOT a democracy. Get over it!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Pete Hegseth!!!



Pete Hegseth is saying: "America's a republic, not a democracy, so all of this consternation about votes and election deniers is beside the point. Voting is like a opioid; it makes Democrats feel good as they go about stealing the country. But we're really a republic which means right thinking Republicans can simply take it back when they want. . . . And that time is now!"






*******************************************************

Above CAPTION satirizes Hegseth's diatribe against democracy this morning. I heard Tucker do the same several weeks ago. Is there a pattern? You bet. They are minimizing the import of the vote because they know Republicans will have to cast aside and steal elections in the future.

"As Attorney General of Texas, let me ask you this. . ." Please come CAPTION Ken Paxton!!!




Ken ("Anyway, life is short" ) Paxton is saying: "Do you think those children at Ulvade were thinking about racial prejudice or their First Amendment rights? Maybe they were thinking about income inequality? Or prescription drug prices. . . Yeah, right! . . I know you know better than that. . . . They were thinking about how great it was to grow up in the greatest country that every existed where every person was free to own as many guns as they want. . . . They were thinking like Americans! . . . Besides, it's all God's plan."




*****************************************

Above CAPTION is satire based on Paxton's most recent callousness as covered in Crooks and Liars:

"It was all just a Democrat hit job!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends!!!



Pete Hegseth just finished saying: "Meanwhile, the so-called Jan. 6th Committee held a prime-time hearing last night to distract from inflation, immigration and crime. . . . And guess what, we've heard it all before!"

Ainsley Earhardt just finished saying: "And did you guys notice how one-sided it all was? Disgusting!"

Brian Kilmeade is saying: "Yeah, who is speaking up for the insurrectionists?"


******************************************************

Caution: CAPTIONing at DU is creative, but this is not far from what was actually said this morning!

Standing strong for America! . . . Please come CAPTION Fox & Friends!!!



Steve Doocy just said: "Here at Fox, we think it's a sacred obligation to stand strong with our country especially now in its support of Ukraine, but saying Putin shouldn't remain in power or calling him a war criminal is both counter productive and needlessly vindictive."

Ainsley Earhardt just said: "Doesn't Joe Biden know the old rhyme, 'Sticks and stones may break my bones / but names will never hurt me'"?

Brian Kilmeade is saying: "Some people would say he forgot it due to cognitive decline."

Steve Doocy is about to say: "It could well be that, but maybe it's just one more show of weakness: you can't stand up against a bully, so you call him names while running away. . . . What a clown!"


**********************************************

The above is satire (think SNL) but it's not far from reality. These jerks are ready for parody, so try your hand by providing a CAPTION.

"Biden is multiple times worse than Putin!" . . . Please come CAPTION Pete Hegseth!!!!



Pete Hegseth is saying: "You're right Harris, Biden and the Squad are carpet-bombing America with deadly liberal policies and debilitating wokeness. . . . By comparison, Ukrainians have a walk in the proverbial park . . . Biden and his cronies should be brought up on war crime charges at the Hague."



***********************************************

Above CAPTION (which is satire) is based on the following story, with a healthy clip) at Crooks and Liars:

https://crooksandliars.com/2022/03/hegseth-faulkner-biden-ukraine-wokeness

"He works in mysterious ways." . . . Please come CAPTION Pat Robertson!!!




Pat Roberson saying: "Putin is actually God's instrument. When he pushes the red button, that will all be part of God's plan! . . . We should be joyous, not fearful. . . . Why doesn't anybody see that but me?"



*************************************

Above CAPTION based on the following Daily Beast story with a healthy clip:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/pat-robertson-insists-putins-compelled-by-god-to-invade-ukraine-to-kick-off-end-times

"It was just some legitimate political discourse, right?" . . . Come CAPTION exPresidented Trump!!!!

?quality=85&w=1024&h=512&crop=1

"Wait till they see you guys give the country at big bear hug!!!"

An OAN god recently visited earth. . . Please come CAPTION Pearson Sharp!!




Pearson ("When I was a kid, nobody would play with me." ) Sharp is saying: "Dr. Fauci and the Democrats designed the so-called vaccine specifically to kill people after stripping them of billions of dollars. . . . Sound crazy? You bet it does! . . . Here are the facts . . ."

Above CAPTION based on the following item with a healthy clip at Crooks and Liars:

"All I want is equal justice!" . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!




Donald ("I buy Depends in bulk" ) Trump is saying: "Listen, in our system, justice is supposed to be equal, right? So explain to me why defendants on our side aren't able to prosecute the people trying to prosecute them? . . . Does that sound fair to you? . . . And if they charge me with bogus crimes, shouldn't I have the right to indict them?" . . . Give me a break!"

"Trump's right. I've been very bad!" . . . Please come CAPTION Ted Cruz!!



Ted ("Only public spankings, please.) Cruz is saying: "Biden's plan to name a black woman to the Supreme Court is wore than insulting and could well be illegal. . . . It's like telling the American people there are no well qualified white males. This is probably treason as well since it gives aid and comfort to America's enemies. Now Putin and Xi can tell the Politburo and Chinese Communist Party that America is so racist that that they have to rig the Supreme Court to pretemd like we aren't. . . . I'm asking for a full-blown investigation!!!"
