Dawn of Darkness

Dawn of Darkness

“The day of battle dawned pink as the fresh-
bitten thigh of a maiden.”--Roger Zelazny.

Day 8 
has dawned
on the Trumpian era.

Muslims are
being murdered
while at prayer
in Quebec.

Trump’s immigrant ban
has transformed all the
world’s airports
into sloth-pits.

No one 
was consulted
or directed,

Chaos reigns supreme
as Benito Baloney

plays at President. 


Glenn Buttkus

I wonder if he will ever call the murder of Muslims in Canada an act of terror...

Can't wait for this guy to be impeached ~He incites intolerance and hate ~

I could have done without the picture.

Seems to be the recurring theme today... hard to search for positives in such an environment.

I always wondered about the word impeachment - that's going to be a peach of a day!

Welcome to 1984. I wonder how George Orwell must have felt if he lived to see Trump. *sigh*

You always nail it! Sloth pit indeed. Tipping my morning cup to you, my friend ☕
And I must add, how appropriate you begin with a quotation that is not quite "grabbing" but the bite is close enough.
