Finally(he-he-he)

David Kapp, Belthorn

chuckle

gets us off

after the expected

pre-show

it looks like any

military dictatorship

from a bygone era

(Chile came to mind)

the reddish overalls

are combative

making points

(but are they scoring)

someone calls the emperor

a constitutional delinquent

(probably the most gracious

of the labels flung his way)

finally

the presidential

chuckle

he-he-he

it’s the economy you say

(one more time)

he-he-he

transformation you say

(one more time)

he-he-he

radically you say

(one more time)

he-he-he

(one more time)

Late into the night,

February 9 2017, we get SONA-ing.
