The Halls of Power

A poem about America’s political culture

Photo by L Link on Unsplash

in the halls of power
the echo of shoes snap
payments circulate
in the air currents
while the girders sag
and the paintings of Founding Fathers
become nothing more than wallpaper
impeached each day
by those who wag their lies
in a culture of hateful stories
that not even Twain could believe possible
