Trade Sleep for Hypocrisy

Free Verse poetry on the ousting of Liz Cheney

like hyenas, the power-hungry
drool over
the shimmer of Cheney’s seat
at the liars’ table
vying for the sliver of throne
where she guards her meat,
the shadow of McCarthy’s
loafer nudges the adhesive
obsessed over her sticky
conscience, the blatant
trade sleep for hypocrisy
