Crazy, by Jennifer Lagier

Doubling down on cruel,
racist and stupid,
bloviates via Twitter.
Calls for immediate deportations
of undocumented asylum seekers,
denying due process.

A clueless FLOTUS
negates her purported
compassionate field trip,
wins the Marie Antoinette tone-deaf award
by visiting child concentration camps
wearing a jacket bearing the slogan
I Really Don’t Care – Do U?

From coast to coast,
untethered authoritarianism
ignites growing bipartisan mutiny.
Awakened people of conscience
stand up, speak out,
refuse to accept one more extremist,
unconstitutional outrage.
