its-only-castles-bruning

during
inauguration weekend
trump’s sons
are offering
access
to
the freshly-minted
counterfeit
president
in exchange
for
million-dollar donations
to
unnamed
charities
oh
and
exxonmobil chief
nominated
as
secretary of state
was
a one-time director
of
an offshore company
with
close
dealings
with
russia
while
in panama
top-drawer lawyers
move freely
between
high government posts
and
law firms
selling
secrecy-cloaked shell companies
mentioning shells
in east Aleppo
a 100,000 children
cannot
play,
sleep
or
attend school
but
can die
don’t let it
bring
you down
It’s
only castles burning

  1. The power of poetry to move the mind when logic and reason fail is fascinating. Your political dissidence poetry is titillatingly (is that a word?) sad but oh, so very true. I am quite on edge, wholly expecting the worse to come tumbling down about our ears quite soon after January 20. To publish work such as this next year will be nothing short of courageous. So I’m not sure if congratulations are really in order, fellow blogger! Perhaps I should offer more of a plea that you not be discouraged, dismayed or fearful and that you boldly soldier on. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Enjoy a moment to shine then spread & share the love! Thanks for being a part of my little blogger-sphere. You truly inspire me.
