The Inauguration of Donald Trump

It was nearly gone now,
feebly scratched,
faltered and foundering,
haltering,
roundly done-in and
tumbled into tiny pieces
that were so small,
so nearly disappeared,
that only the sharpest eyes
could discern its
passing from the planet with
no more significance
than a dropped stitch unravelling
from the very last line of stitches
in the very last piece of cloth
hanging (barely hanging)
from the American Dream
