Weekly poem on Trump Presidency

The Equation: Moments Stolen = A Lifetime?

It happened. It happened again. Like a dice roll, a gasp
for breath, a blink. Again and again. Where did I wake up?
What world is this of alternate facts? And then there’s
the scan where citizens juice up morning by a wireless
connection into the mass entertainer, communicator, moment
stealer. People with one arm held high, long, fingers
extended; they wait word from this Grand Poobah of Oh my God.
A total morass. Do the feral dogs know this strangeness of being?
Moments stolen mount. Repeat. He shows no signs of slowing
his double-dealing, his raving. Repeat. Again and again moments
stolen mount. So it happens. It happens again, again. This raper
of laws, history, the future, now. Does he see the country
like a nude woman in a painting not finished until he has
an urge to slap her butt? Oh America, America blink, gasp,
wake up, jump in defiance from this black painting.
