Bad Fundamentalist Poesie - from the Cold Dirt Press archives

Despite the fact that convicted child molester Warren Jeffs is incarcerated in federal prison, he still has his minions at the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to do his bidding and they apparently have the funds to publish and distribute apocalyptic warnings to government agencies and schools. Some news stories state that the recipients are throwing the mailing in the trash.

Imagine my glee when my sister showed me a copy that was sent to the school where she worked. Being a Subgenius connoisseur of schizophrenic ramblings from way back, I was fascinated and asked if I could keep it. The bland tome is devoid of any images or color, only black text on cheap paper stock with a hefty title on the matte finish cover:
Words are randomly capitalized and the psychotic warnings repeat for all of the target populations starting with the generalized Nations of the Earth (someone watched a few too many 1950s science fiction movies) to the United States, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Latvia, NATO, the Vatican and so on.

It is a difficult read, not meant for the faint of heart, like a modern insane Apocrypha; spam poetry of epic proportions. My eyes and mind ached after reading it and then my laptop crashed TWICE while I was working on the image scans. That is some far reaching juju with an ISBN bar code on the back.

The FLDS encourages people to purchase their literature online. Because you shouldn't have to give those creeps your hard-earned money, the scans are here for your reading pleasure. Sit back with a hot beverage and let the catastrophic poesie carry you away to hell in a hand basket or a paradise of long blue dresses, severe up-dos and spotlessly clean brains.
