poem and more: World According to Grump

This is not about the Grump. It is about us. 
It is about the longing of some of us to dismiss a politician who scares the hell out of us as an unthreatening clown. It is us pretending a threat does not exist at all.

deep dive into his reality
a stellar life of fear and death
rending garments
yanking out hair
smiling for the candid media cameras
sharing poorer educationfor whatever it’s worth
mistrusting lovers
learning to hate neighbors
walking between the crossfire of guns
breathing in fractured sidewalks
exhaling all the lies
eating poverty
drinking hopelessness
running out of lifelines
no friends left to call
