“Censorship is to art, as lynching is to justice.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

by Caud Sewer Bile

Joe’s never spoken to his son about Burisma—No!
The New York Post was not supposed to show that it was so.
That treasure trove of laptop data wasn’t for our eyes.
That Hunter smoked crack while he had sex has to be denied.
It seems computer and hard drive were seized by FBI
back in December 2019. It must be a lie.
On Sunday last, the former mayor, Giuliani gave
the New York Post a hard-drive copy the shopkeeper saved.
And now the news is leaked. Don’t let it hit the Internet,
so Facebook now, and Twitter too, have censored news of it.

    The scum who run Facebook and Twitter are desperate to throw the election to the Democrat Party. So they have censored the scandalous news about the Bidens. Anyone who at this point still plans on voting for the Democrat ticket of a leftist bitch and a demented old ward-heeler must be as blind and as stupid as a bag of hair.

      Although I agree with Mr. Salemi on his final point, his simile surprised me with its strangeness (reminding me of Early 20th-Century Russian literary theory).

    Hunter Biden is an absolute disgrace. Facebook and Twitter ain’t better.

      As Autumn glides along, the sentiment the youthful Kolkata classicist evokes is contained in the final couplet.

    Bruce, thank you for bringing the criminal activities of Joe Biden and his family to public attention when the majority of news outlets refuse to do so. I am hoping and praying the power of poetry may well bring a few undecideds to their senses… we can only but hope.

      … the damage has already been done. The story has been passed off as unreliable, hacked info that’s dangerous to our democracy… and many believe it. Too little, too late.

    According to MIT, the Hunter Biden laptop corruption story had greater visibility due to Twitter’s suppression.
