Kane Mutiny

by Julia Griffin

“80-year-old review wrecks Citizen Kane’s 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes”
The Guardian

In other news: the Brandenburg concerti
The Marquis rates at fifteen out of thirty.
King James’s final verdict on Macbeth?
Six out of twenty. Too much doom and death.
Like Gettysburg? You’re barking up the wrong street:
They left out the response of one J. Longstreet,
And Scripture’s record someone ought to straighten.
One out of ten for bias, reckons Satan.
