"Barracuda" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 16 August 2009.


One who resigns just halfway through a job
can't really insist she's not a quitter,
when she logs on and riles up her mob,
ranting nonsense recklessly on Twitter.
She quit the cast but lingers on the stage,
envisioning fictional death panels
to manufacture conservative rage
that's amplified by deceptive channels
so eager for a blind theocracy
they forsook civil discourse long ago
to broadcast high-octane hypocrisy
from Washington to Fairbanks and Juneau.
She's just an unemployed Alaskan spouse,
but Putin can still see her from his house.
