UNTITLED (on the state of the union)

Ever-increasing ev’ryday bullshit

Momentarily overwhelms logic.

From the white house, from their bully pulpits

They spew verbal chum that would make dogs sick!

The free mind finds no solace in this truth.

They are just wise enough… not to partake.

The emperor wears only his false tooth.

Sociopaths don’t get, “for goodness’ sake.”

Empathy and civility are lost

When administrations become regimes.

The first family thinks they’re above the law.

Cast away former “allies” reveal schemes.

Turn state’s evidence, as they make plea deals.

Facts so outrageous they just don’t seem… real.
