day TWO HUNDRED and SEVENTY SIX

A New War

Batshit Cheeto-in-Chief
branches out from fighting
with mainstream “Faux News”
to bluster at sane Americans,
threaten military action
against Venuzuela,
nuclear-armed North Korea.

When tiki torch toting Nazis
and white supremacists
march to promote virulent hate,
murder a peaceful protestor,
he reluctantly condemns violence,
blames “both sides”
despite the reality
only one’s the aggressor.

Public outrage forces him
to denounce the KKK.
His insincere comments
made under duress
are retracted in less
than twenty-four hours.

The man with small hands
salivates to ignite
a 21st century civil war.
His petulant tantrums
continue a campaign
founded on lies,
Russian intervention,
right-wing provocation.
