Poems of the Week

Les Misérables

by Dan Campion

“Hundreds of Trump supporters stuck on freezing cold Omaha airfield after rally, 7 taken to hospitals”
NBC News

Don leaves supporters in the cold;
They shouldn’t be surprised.
The sick, the poor, the meek, the old—
They’re plainly his despised:

If you don’t own a limousine
Or fly on Air Force One,
You’re just a blip across his screen,
Then frozen out, my son,

And, hypothermic daughter, you
Are also on his Z-list.
So, welcome to the canned-heat crew.
Is that frostbite thou feelest?
