Trump Again by Ceinwen Elizabeth Cariad Haydon

Trumped by his own trumpery,
this ghastly gargoyle
who fronts ferocious fantasies,
decomposes dramatically
before our very eyes.
Beware triumphalism, sweet
relief or even boredom;
Trump came, obscene, but
not alone for all his grandiosity.
Watch the waters
for the hideous wave that breaks
and hurls
a new Satan to the shore
to haunt America’s
poor, her women and her people
of difference.
The new nuclear option
in this benighted, first-world
