8/24/17

Choreography of Disorientation – Roger Cohen NYTimes Op-ed

“truth and falsehood vie

remember: freedom requires 

distinction between —

***

fake scripted mouthpiece

genuine unscripted voice

take turns to confuse

***

intentional ruse

messes with minds — feeds anger

fuels his ambition

***

dishonest leader —

calls media dishonest

— for exposing him.”

 

8/26/17 – 8/28/17

racist friend pardoned

(he who defied court orders)

granted lifetime pass

***

announced during

natures reality show

to boost rump’s ratings

***

hurricane thrashes

climate change science fake-news!

rains batter and flood

***

neighbors help neighbors

endurance and character 

shine in Houston hoods

8/29/17

rat-king and wife land

for photo-op with Harvey

biggest-ever storm!

***

as flood waters rise

he bathes in warm self-regard

Texans lose homes — life

***

prefer we lose rat

save our country — rule of law

restore decency

***

free press keeps pressing

indispensable constraint on power

bulwark of democracy
