Moscow Mitch has no time for COVID relief,
needs what’s left of his flagging energy
to pack more right-wing cultists
into lifetime federal judgeship appointments.
Sycophants follow his lead,
spin conspiracy theories,
deny the fact their fascist-in-chief
has lost the presidential election.
Around us, coronavirus rages.
Trumpanzis refuse to wear masks,
socially isolate, take any safety precautions.
Infections and death rates skyrocket.
Democracy is on the skids.
Sick, unemployed Americans
cling to fantasies of deliverance.
Grifters grift. Civilization unravels.
