in more despair
that so few heed
a prophetic writer,
this online poster
of words that bare
the predator creed
of insidious pretenders
selling hope and care
to citizens who dream
THAT politician
may TRY to be fair,
then witness the acts
of legal plunder.

When Mailer wrote
"We love that false"
I thought it a crime.
Now I offer the quote
in my lonely waltz
of verse and rhyme.
