An Indiana Back Road

Confederate flag waves in the North. Fat man on a riding mower cuts grass. He leaves long dead blades behind. Soon, they’ll yellow and turn to straw.

He wears a red MAGA hat with white sweat marks on it. His tee-shirt rides over his hairy belly. It states, FREEDOM FIRST. Dark clouds roll in.

A banner on his fence says, Jesus Is My Lord…Trump Is My President. Pickups drive by and honk. Wave as they pass.

The fat man drinks a beer on his front porch and looks over his work. He’s proud of his accomplishment. Soon it will rain.
