Mr. Water Gate333333

 

Sour faced Mr.

water gate

gone to vote, rigged

                the entire burden

                         lazybones slapped

forget fact

                fiends in human form

forget

          America

children worshipped guns

he adored

stars

        brass

              his mother

Christmas.

 

Blackout poem from Page 642, Andersonville, by MacKinlay Kantor, 1955
