goodnight America…

she encapsulates America…

this leading lady… coiffed circus act…our center ring is lit…

played well…nothing up her sleeve…presto…the art of the possible never looked so good…

manipulation…intemidation…threats…always poised to pounce…waiting for no-one…fools and laymen step aside…

her’s is the thrown to take…seated with scepter…wanting wishes granted…go away boys…go away…there’ll be no bread today…

nor goodwill shown…or love of fellow man…promises tossed to peasants long ago…a bone your highness…a bone…

and i shall watch as this kingdom collapses…castles built on hallowed ground…by Teddy…FDR…Barbara’s brilliance…those shiny stars which have dimmed…

vapors now linger…vapors…

goodnight America…goodnight…

i kiss thee…goodnight…

*Pres. Teddy Roosevelt (R)
