304

Dear Trump supporter,

304
took the oath
of President
when
does he intend
to conduct himself as such?

The incessant
insatiable need
for worship
and adoration
from everyone
everywhere
is toxic
please make it stop.

I’d prefer
to write poetry
in my spare time
absorbing
impressions
of
daily life
as they
swirl
conjoin
and reappear
as
clever tidbits
to tickle your fancy
at a later date

but

my mind
withers
under the barrage

alternative facts
a flood
of lies
waves so high
even
Noah’s ark
would
become a death-trap
please make it stop.

The mirror universe
is not real
and I
can’t concentrate
drowning
in the fake
being created
as a foil
to distract
from incompetence.

Are we
to be
hostages
tortured
terrorised
to sign
forced confessions
of love
to placate
rejection
at Bowling Green?

I don’t
like your guy
but
I respect the office
of President
hence
I admonish you
lean on 304
to do the same
out of love for country
and
a tiny bit
for poetry.
