Dark Light

At this point in our story former glory is for sale..
off the shelf courage, competence and dis-
counted capabilities float
below market place common
cents and stink of capitulation capital

A nosegay to a certain cadre
of the Capitol, buttonholed
by the florid arrangements of bullies
and the bellicose with the attention
span of a funeral wreath..Watch
how that garden grows
