End of Days
“Watching White House press conferences these days is like watching psych ward orderlies try to convince their patients not to eat live pigeons whole in the exercise yard.” —Daily Kos
Today Inmate Number One
declares himself “The Chosen,”
“King of Israel,”
calls the Federal Reserve Chair, “an enemy.”
Earlier, he proposed purchasing Greenland.
Literate adults with critical thinking skills
grind their teeth; the economy craters.
Outraged citizens demand leadership
but get third-rate performance art,
demented reality t.v.,
Tourette syndrome twitter.
An ethically challenged lunatic
with anger management issues
holds our government hostage.
Daily, he petulantly melts down,
his tiny finger hovering
over a nuclear trigger.
