Trumpery by Cath Campbell

I listen to his speech and the polite
uncertain applause for a tyrant in the making.
Haha America. Haha whole world.

Cry if you want to.
This is the time of over-kill,
over the barrel, gratuitous waste,

the serpent swallowing its tail.
This is the pivotal point
spilling into wars of want.

There is no need for knowledge.
Go home, settle the account with your tailor,
the cloth was cut within the rules.

Make peace with your God.
Now is come a time of destruction,
and somewhere out there is a ship of fools.
