What a Riot

by Clyde Always

“‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley sentenced to 41 months in prison for role in US Capitol riot …
[In court] Chansley… described wanting to live his life like Jesus Christ and Gandhi.”

How fearsome you looked in your horns & your fur
& your mug all encrusted in paint…
So, maybe a talented LARPer you are—
a messiah you certainly ain’t.
