Default Dreams during an Election 2016

This is a little personal commentary on the presidential election madness that's all. In the form a poem of sorts. It's a draft but here it is.



At dawn
from across the river
I saw
the might of the 'free'
in their camp
ringed
with pointed sticks.

I watched
their new lord
clad in righteous cloth and lies
and the finest Italian loafers
fawning
over his reflection at the water's edge.


I saw him then
turn back
graceless and indifferent
to step in distaste
over the broken backs
of the ignorant...

who had gathered
to bleat his name

and had cluttered about
in selfish sacrifice
around an altar
of ash and shit

waiting for the dark.
