Minority Reign

“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.”
(Mitch McConnell, in October 2010)

OZYMITCHIAS
Regnant canker, excrescent knob, coonskin
gerrymandarin of the scrotal void,
inverted rictus of obstructionism,
hollowed be thy name! Where laws go to die,
malignant solon, turdiform conniver,
is in thy fiddlebusted, chambered morgue.

In the republic of the mean, the ornery,
fair, Ozymitchias, thou never wert.
Look upon his deeds, Democracy,
And weep the sacred trust his wiles pervert.
(JMN)

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
