“Clowns have often had ambiguous and sometimes
contradictory roles to play.”--Thomas Ligotti.
With the Donald marching to victory, how could I stay
in my right mind? For puzzlement now just sits
smugly on logic’s face, while a very dark dirge plays
on speakers unseen, pushing me to my wit’s
demise--where chaos reigns & nothing fits.
Is this all just a macabre nightmarish comedy
where rules become jokes & common sense flits
like a butterfly with shredded wings? A real tragedy
is being performed, but camouflaged to the eye,
a Punch & Judy show, leagues away from being smart.
It does not help to lament, whine or cry,
nor reveal the wounds to your broken heart.
For surely in the future the people will moan
as lies morph into fascism carved in stone.
