Drunken Indian (poem)

Drunken Indian

When I was a drunken Indian
I screamed at the White Man
for the atrocities, the smallpox
the theft of our land, the Trail of Tears
the casinos, the degradation and shit.
When I sobered up it was worse.

The Distances Involved

Merry Christmas Everyone!

My story The Distances Involved is published today at 365 Tomorrows.

The Distances Involved
by Kenny A. Chaffin

“What is it you would want to know?” the synthesized voice asked. Johnson scanned the cryptic and stonewall faces assembled around him and the computer screen before typing. “Who are you? Where are you from? How do we know this is not some prank, some hacker?”

“You know where your antennas are pointed. You know the region we are from.”

For the Good of the Country

For the Good of the Country

We become a nation of bigots
a nation of Fascists
by turning the other cheek
by accepting a Racist as our president
in a smooth transition of power
because that is the Democratic way

Kenny A. Chaffin – 11/15/2016



When Dolly had babies they were all exactly like her.
The scientists had somehow locked her genome.
No one knew how or why, but the world
would never be the same.
