    Donor Feast (Inspired by Tanner and Tonysp)

    The denigration of your neighbours.
    The alienation of your friends.
    Misogyny
    and braggadocio without end.

    Embrace
    moral equivocation
    with obfuscation as your prime tool.
    Elevate atrocious conduct
    from aberration
    to the rule.

    If the truth runs counter
    to your interests
    though its veracity
    cannot escape your eyes,
    just
    press the lids tightly together
    and call it lies.

    Choose leaders
    from the ranks
    of scoundrels
    you once
    chased from the room,
    ignore
    the spectre of fallen empires
    as imitation echoes doom.

    Let them fill the swamp
    as they claim to drain it,
    gather round
    a baptism in swill.
    Put pick-pockets
    at the register,
    and bandits at the till.

    Keep
    waiting on the cavalry to arrive,
    atop integrity
    that majestic beast,
    but alas
    we slaughtered the steed
    for their donors' feast.

    NOTE:

    This poem was inspired by Chaos in Washington and Elsewhere, by Tanner, and Who will stand up and say enough is enough, by Tonysp, two eloquent poems on the state of affairs in Washington, and the world.

    I encourage all to read these profound works, by prolific poets.
