I know what my mom would say. I’ll just say this.
The emperor has traded in
the clothes he does not have
for a hospital gown
The bluster with which he shields himself
could not counteract
His accomplices wear their shock
on their faces
The mask he does not wear
has failed to keep the ruthless enemy
