I heard you say you are an expert at selling anything
Even your body?
Just thought of this today when It dawned on me how much people crave for money and are willing to do anything for it.
supposedly president of the United States
with three milllion fewer votes than your opponent
thanks to the GOP-rigged electoral colleges
after your speech
at the General Assembly of the United Nations
for which you apparently
had a better ghostwriter than usual
and stuck to the script
I have had it, nevertheless!
you refuse to honor
from the Iran nuclear deal
to the international postal service agreement
your sanctions create even more misery
in the countries from which
the refugees at the U.S. southern border
come to escape the terror at home
you destroy long-term international agreements
shouting „America first“
destabilizing politics and the global economy
and long-term alliances
just to demonstrate
that you can do it
because you are now
not even to mention
all the silly and detrimental orders
you issue at home
to lift climate regulations
or pollution laws
or the protection of national parks
or pardon convicted criminals
hoping this will help your reelection
I have had it!
with your erratic agenda
your great alien friends
Putin Duterte Modi Erdogan
and the Saudi Princes, etc. etc.
who help you win your elections
I live in a small country
at the heart of Europe
and I sincerely resent
from your *******-up version
of nationalist identity politics
so I suggest
YOU go home
and your ancestors
and I sincerely hope
that the German immigration officers
will act according to the rules
your ICE applies
to the refugees from
So many words.
Which to choose.
Which to use.
Simple smooth ambivalence
How will the vain
who love the noises of their own voices
gather the patience to listen?
Common sense has gone missing
They wield weapons
blunt and loud like a demagogue's growl
that defiles civil notions
Tools to toy with emotions
Glaring, with nostrils flaring,
at a divorce of nib and ink
My words, forming furiously -
Sharpen them more, rethink!
My words, they will cut deep -
They will pierce the thickest of skins
And find their way into dark hearts
to remind them what it is to bleed.
Feeling quite hateful.
Maybe it's me.
Or maybe it's the world.
Or maybe it's the world I see
on the news channel.
Good fortune to you, friends.
