Another departure

by David Smith

Good riddance to that snarling showman
ICE director Thomas Homan.
He himself now steals away
Who stole away the children of
Asylum seekers to display
An iron fist in iron glove.
Fearing for his confirmation
(Or causing fear in those above),
He puts this face on abdication:
Says, with irony sublime,
He’s off to spend more family time.

Once, this prince of brutal hacks
Told immigrants to watch their backs.
Now they, and I, will find it is
A deal more pleasant watching his.
