Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue by Ben Rasnic

The emperor hovers statuesque
from his golden tower window
above the city by the Potomac
engulfed in flames.

His subjects beneath him
scatter like fire ants
amidst the smoke filled chaos
of crumbling monuments.

he goes about his business,
with his tiny hand.

Ben Rasnic is originally from Jonesville, Va (population <1000). His published poetry collections include: “Artifacts and Legends”, “Puppet”, “The Eleventh Month” and “Synchronicity”.
