The Pentagon collected research that warned Soviets with “super-human abilities” could shoot lightning out of their hands

Goes without saying – so have no doubt
Super-sensitives are – oh so thin
‘ts not condoms,  that I’m talking about
But electrovalents on their skin

Super human, what an organism!
Yanking his sword, it was frightening
30 hours a day,  practiced onanism
And got fiery balls of lightning!

As late as 1990, reports collected by the Pentagon show the U.S. Government was willing to take seriously reports that the Soviets were able to manifest “ball lightning” by using the brain as a “superconductor.”

To be Scottish or Not to Be?

What thought Mr. York
Like any other dork
Its a fad, a cross dressing fetish
When you walk it Scottish!

Don’t need a company crest
To define you on your chest
Not all work at Lloyds
To fill in their voids

Funny like Scaramucci
A man, a brand, like Gucci
Odd technique, but not wrong
Just like Bannon, tip to tongue

A feast, a passage, it is a rite
Said Yoda don’t try, and do it right
Eh! boir sec High and Lo
Avec les mecs, Tintin, Milo 🙂

Reading the Poetry of War

Poetry is an intensely individual experience—for the poet and for the reader of poetry—and begs for diversity because of it. Soldiers experience war differently from civilians and leaders differently from those they lead. The ancients experienced war differently from our contemporaries. Men experience war differently from women. We experience war differently from them, and the living certainly experience it differently from the dead.

Walks through a sunken dream: the CIA report on life on Mars

Take me to your leader oh OWSTTS! 
Is FISA retroactive in time and space?
This is no reverse targetting
Or some bad hombre marketing
Hmm … I am stargazed … wondering
While sincerely pondering
Do aliens have unalienable rights?
Across many suns … a million lights?

In 1984, the CIA sent a psychic back in time to talk to Martians. This is not code language. The CIA sent psychics back in time to talk to Martians because the CIA had time-traveling spacefaring psychics. Nothing else we could say would make more sense given what the CIA had and did.

The truly terrible Cold War poetry hidden in the CIA’s archives

As we’ve written about before, the CIA’s obsessive scrapbooking led to the preservation of quite a few bizarre artifacts in its declassified archives – and perhaps none are stranger than this collection of terrible topical poems, which, through tortured rhyming couplets, offer the author’s takes on geopolitics, race relations, and the merits of “Captain Kangaroo.”
