"HRC" by Ross Balcom, Frequent Contributor

Ross Balcom

I smell a rat
in the outhouse
the old order
finally succumbed

dead on the toilet

over her head

her legacy smeared
on toilet paper

vile currency
of empire

passed from hand
to hand

smelly fingers

by demon children
squealing rat-hordes

from the pit
terminal light

in verminous eyes

last flare
of the cannibal sunset

Poet's Notes: Hillary Rodham Clinton, imperialist warmonger, is the Democratic Party's 2016 nominee for president of the United States. I long for her political demise and for the ruin of the military-industrial death machine that she represents.  As a clinician, I observe that only the terminally insane are drawn to the Oval Office.
