Donal Mahoney- Two Poems

Domestic Terrorists

The ones we didn’t abort
we’re starting to euthanize
so no worries there.

It’s the ones in the middle
still walking around
we have to worry about.

They must go, too, you know. 
All the guns will help.
And the heroin, too.

Eternity in Global Warming

A clerk in a health food store
became upset when I said
I didn’t see anything I wanted
since I wasn’t a vegan
or vegetarian and liked my
red meat rare and dripping.

She said I needed to know
Nature is God and
Satan is Climate Change 
and if I didn't eat right
I would spend Eternity 
in Global Warming.

I went back to the counter,
apologized with all my heart,
and said I would like to buy 
the biggest hand fan in stock.

Nominated for Best of the Net and Pushcart prizes, Donal Mahoney has had poetry and fiction published in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Some of his work can be found at
