on the evening news

Halloween

Watching the interview,
you are grinning like a Cheshire cat
at the Mad Hat(t)ers
Tea Party.
You’re smiling,
orange you,
saying
“Nobody’s being hurt-
Its for your own good-
We will win this fight-
It is the principle of the thing.”
And all the time,
I know,
you have
no
guts.
Someone else has lit the flame,
flickering behind your eyes.
And that grin
is only hiding
the emptiness
in your
big
fat
head.

  2. What a strong line in this way of thinking: can be an indication of all sorts of things.
    And the accompanying picture is a gem.
