Hollow

Her World Will End Now Hollow
(after T.S. Eliot The Hollow Men)

This is the way the world ends
They’ve pointed their guns

This is the way the world ends
With threats unspared

This is the way the world ends
For those who oppose

This is the way her world ends

Not with a bang but a whimper

And now her blessing is hers
alone, in the hollow world of
edited thought where I shall
join her just for today for this
is the way the world ends.

Written in response to Valerie Jarrett’s comment: “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.”–V. Jarrett.

Thanks to Susan Craig for her post today.
