More on Helms

Jonathan William wrote a poem for Jesse Helms. Here it is:

POEM BEGINNING WITH FIVE WORDS BY
GERARD MANLEY HOPKINS

glory be to god
for jesse helms jesse
hates fags jesse hates
niggers jesse hates modern
art now that one
thinks about it jesse’s
just like most people
in north carolina and
everywhere else what jesse
likes is beauty and
beauty’s what bites you
on the butt and
don’t leave a hickey
on monday morning we
must be kind to
jesse helms you must
brake for senior republican
senators from north carolina
he has the law
on his sidewinder snake
in the grass that
he is whether he
will brake for us
poets and artsnakes is
another matter thank you
jesus thanks a bunch

and remember to die
