“Can’t We Fire the Firer?”
“nothing to fear but fear itself”:
–presidential words from a white man’s maw–
And yet the whirl’d are calling for help
deliverance from a “racist’s” jaw.
“We’ll make it great. We’ll build a wall.”:
–caterwauling claims in a campaign’s craze–
What truth is Left when half of all
the suffrage’d practice civil malaise?
make sheep and straw of a thick-wigged rogue.
White hoods burning roods — far worse a thought
from a nation’s brutal ancestry.
What will we tell the next of kin
of such demo-gogue-otocracy?
Shall we protest? Enact unrest?
Or resurrect fair old polity?
Why bother? Stack high the kindling:
KEEP CALM AND TWITTER ON
