SAND CASTLES by jjméndez

       Sand Castles

There’s an overgrown
orange-faced gnome 
wrapped in our flag.

He roams unrestrained
on the political scene
flaunting the fluff 
in his swollen head

And he goes about
spreading his hate 
as he laughs 
on top his soapbox
and randomly 
shoots from the hip 
his usual litany 
of cynical quips.

This mess of a gnome 
preys all too well on 
the naive who live
uninformed and 
in confusion. He
claims they all
are fair game 
and easy to please 
with his diatribe 
of mudslinging 
and vilification
for those who dare 
to differ with him.

It’s inevitable
as history
usually tells
karma and reason
Will soon have 
their turn in the sun

And this warthog- 
faced gnome will 
soon self-destruct 
in his own festering mire
of immature rants 
and childish fits.

And we’ll finally see 
his  castles of sand 
crumble and fall 
deep in a hole… 

And the world 
will sigh once 
again with relief.
