Getting Warm

by Nora Jay

“A man photographed wearing face paint and a horned headdress during the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol said he would be willing to testify at former President Trump’s impeachment trial”
The Hill, January 28th

“A young, woolly rhino has been thawed whole after as much as 40,000 years frozen in Siberian permafrost.”
New York Post, January 26th

After what seems like 40,000 years,
A horned and hairy beast has been unfrozen,
And means to testify, it now appears,
Against the alpha-beast it has unchosen.
Reclaimed from QAnon and permafrost,
The woolly one concedes that Trump has lost.
