“Bread and Circuses”
Today Washingtonian elephants Trumpet
away to the tweet tweet of distraction
for days on end while blue jackasses bray
away abuse, abused and abusing
the general multitude.
Meanwhile, the Ringmaster serves as clown supreme
serving double purpose: distracts us all
from our bread-full bellies as he erodes
our way of life, keeps us laughing
so we don’t notice
the price we paid to get here.
the price we still pay.
