ENTERTAINER DISCLAIMER
(6/11/13)


I shall have
a small
portable podium
constructed

one which
I can carry
beneath my arm
as I proceed
from one
daily stop
to the next

work
businesses
recreational venues
home

destinations
arrived
I will place
my miniature stage
below me
before
I utter
a single
syllable

finally
I'll retrieve
a cleverly concealed
placard
from within
the support

hang it
about my neck
using an attached
cord

proclaim myself
COMEDIAN

then launch
into whatever
terrible diatribe
that may seem
least appropriate
but most real
for my audience
with complete
immunity

fuck
political correctness

I will
let the insults
and profanities fly
under the guise
of comedy

I may
be booed

but I
won't
be sued

for any
slander
or defamation
sallied forth

feelings
may be
hurt

but I
will walk
away
after

unscathed
legally
at least

~

what
did the assholes
expect
for a free
show?
