Outside the Caption


             

every so often our war

criminals get together

to pose for a group photo

wearing slick smiles & sleek suits


whose cost you cannot fathom

it’s not real if you forget

if you can forget you will

blushing children gathered round


gush from all their tiny pores

when a former president

turned grandpapa sits to play

the shiny grand piano


he tortures the keys but you

recognize the tune at once

he knows how to get things done

horrible horrible things
