‘Moral Suasion’ – a thoughtful poem by a thoughtful reader

Frank Report does not get nearly enough poetry and when we get a submission we are usually glad to publish it.

Here is an outstanding poem sent in by a literary reader recently.

Moral Suasion

By Ada Richter

It was moral suasion

I know

And it almost worked

Right then, for the bail package


Just a passing glance

at Allison Mack

Just a brief romance

And I might have gone

On my way

Out of the jurisdiction


It was moral suasion

I know

Seeing me alone

With the moonlight above

Then I bribe the guards

And next moment

I’m gone

Moral suasion turns to freedom


It was moral suasion

I know

Seeing me out of jail

With the moonlight above

Then I board the plane

And next moment

I kiss you, Clare, on the lips

Moral suasion turned – to – love


Doesn’t Clare Bronfman offer moral suasion?  If your choice was prison or be alone with her on Wakaya Island – for life – which would you choose? How much moral suasion does any man need to not escape?

shotgun with you vanguard – but

my horse was too high.

So the Vanguard remains stuck in jail,
Since the judge could observe, without fail,
To Mexico he’d fled,
With DOS slaves in his bed,
And he’d do it again given bail!

That's a tough choice, Frank.

Glad I don’t have to make a choice between prison or trapped alone on an island with Clare.

I was trying to think of something positive to say about Keith to assuage the NXIVM brainwashed SJWs that want to control our free speech, but I struggle think of a single good thing to say about him.

Oh, wait, I found something good to say! He’s in MDC where he belongs! YAY!

Something super positive about NXIVM is that they have CLOSED! Double YAY!

Somebody better make sure to let Toni and Chet know that The Fall Podcast must now contain 50% pro-NXIVM statements. And, boy, you have got a lot of catching up to do to balance out the website, Frank. LOL!

I am going to be cracking up about this one for a while. Wish I could see the judge’s face if that moronic suggestion actually makes it in front of him.

What touching words!

Poetry for sociopaths.

And isn’t the Angel Clare a Vision of Loveliness?

But this picture of Angel Clare is more Accurate.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
