18 Dec 2015 – Slouching Towards Washington

Baboons preach anger,
egged on by respective troops
who fling them peanuts.

To think, of all these
slouching now towards Washington,
one really winning!

The war of Weimar
worked out in its cobbled streets
replay around us,

that spectral shadow
born again in fearing hearts
we thought once conquered.
