Fall Like Empires by Jennifer Lagier

Pity poor Melania,
puppet plaything caught
delivering a plagiarized speech.
The Donald’s mail order bimbo
is out of her depth,
more comfortable topless,
modeling a thong
while clutching a rifle.
Now she is expected
to project gravitas
as potential First Lady.

Unable to understand her gaffe,
she waits for heads to roll,
take the fall on her behalf
as the Hungry for Power
spectacle explodes
before the entire world
on network TV.

Jennifer Lagier is a disillusioned ex-hippie in search of a more rational country. Failing that, would settle for amusing companions to await upcoming apocalypse.
