The following poem is very much for mature audiences. It is raw. You will be offended.

The Left still defends Democrat powerful men against crowds of women, even when those women are liberal too.

Is it ever going to change?

They way the rightwing talks about Trump makes my brain hurt.

According to Wikipedia, a “simulacrum(simulacra): Something that replaces reality with its representation… an image without the substance or qualities of the original. It is no longer a question of imitation, nor duplication, nor even parody.”

Do we owe respect in death to a man who in life espoused only disrespect?

“I am to die steeped in treasonous guilt, my name cursed, my memory unmourned.” –Paul W.S. Bowler

Trump lies kill Americans…
shackling hate and drowning hope…
His only legacy…
…a legacy of death

Illustration by D. Denise Dianaty

Donald the Orange,
looming and rotund,
making the Bible his cheap prop.
Boneman, eater of souls…
the nightmare brutalizing decency,
breaking trust, betrayer of humanity
promoter of poverty and death
in a nation held hostage.
The Don’s bellowing mob…
echoing trumpery of lies and rage…
the “Army of Trump”
beating their war drums,
occupied America four years.
Ring in the new year
while the Nightmare Man
plays another round of golf
and bemoans that on no covers
was his porn model displayed

shackling hate and drowning hope…
His only legacy…
…a legacy of death

In the midst of a global pandemic,
Our nation convulses in pain…
four hundred years of racism
carved in the skin of freedom.
Unarmed Black citizens
murdered by policemen…
Our Black brothers and sisters…
…still, they die …still they die
for mere suspicion they die
while murdering white boys pass unmolested
raving white supremacists
advocating oppression and genocide.
An agenda fueled by illogic and hate
If the “other” cannot be suppressed…
…oppressed to benefit the white race,
then make war against it
Cloak it with a “Christian” veneer
with nothing of Christ in its ideology.

shackling hate and drowning hope…
His only legacy…
…a legacy of death

A bleak dawn last Mother’s Day
saw eighty thousand dead
One hundred thirty thousand
“liberated” from life
for Independence Day 2020
two hundred thirty seven thousand, November 3rd.
And, Merry fucking Christmas…
grimly marked the day with death.
A new year dawns… yet another grim marker
racing toward 400 thousand dead.
The fetid promise: So much winning…
Our pleading cry: Are we done winning yet?
America’s next deadly inning
Surpass four hundred thousand lost lives debt
In these few — still too many — days to come
The “Chosen One” chooses the vile, arrant lie.
Americans die by the Don’s cold killing choice.

shackling hate and drowning hope…
His only legacy…
…a legacy of death
