If fear and hate torpedo love


“We have a word for people who are dominated by fear. We call them cowards. Trump was not a coward in the business or campaign worlds. He could take on enormous debt and had the audacity to appear at televised national debates with no clue what he was talking about. But as president his is a policy of cowardice. On every front, he wants to shrink the country into a shell.” – David Brooks

If fear and hate torpedo love,
this ship is going down
and everybody still on board
will very likely drown.
Then while we slowly sink, we’ll hear
the captain and his crew,
absconding with the life boats shout,
“The Donald takes his due!”
