Diatribal (redux)


Orange is the New Bleak 1 (2)

This is a reprise of a poem from a few weeks back. I was going to retire it, but there he was again this morning with Mitch McConnell standing beside him. Mitch looked like a man who would rather be somewhere else, somewhere far away.


America has given birth

to a giant orange child

a zaftig infant Gulliver

striding the ravaged earth

of his own imagination

trampling whole villages

swallowing villagers whole.
