Overtaken by a rash of rhyming and curse as a prompt, I wrote this poem in the other Before-time: before The Election, before 45 was a poisonous number.

Thanks to editor Jerome Betts and Lighten Up Online, it has now found its way into Issue 50 and the world alongside much rhyming, much wry commentary, and some very clever poems.

What Rough Beast, again!

Extremely grateful that editor Michael Broder and What Rough Beast have published five more of my found poems of resistance (links to earlier issues in sidebar at left). A project of the Brooklyn-based nonprofit poetry press Indolent Books, What Rough Beast “publishes innovative, provocative, and risky work” with “particular relevance to issues of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.”

There is hardly anything more relevant to issues of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice than your vote in November.
