"Trump ... " - Eugene C. Bianchi


"Trump …" - Eugene C Bianchi

is a state of mind
gone berserk,
tethered to toddler emotions
of the self-centered bully,
the ultimate puzzle
of extreme capitalism
squeezing the poor
to enrich the rich,
while deluding the underclass
to see themselves as somebodies
in an illusory white America of 1950,
to worship the idol of having over being,
of appearance over meaning,
to imagine their kids riding up
the Tower’s escalator of wealth
to look down on undeserving masses,
necessary losers, while winners
adore gods of deception,
and threaten to destroy the Republic.
