More Legal by the Minute, More Difficult to Fire

Trumpist with gun

photo of a rightist with a gun, FB 2016,
a pistol pointed right at the camera
its barrel practically raping the lens
a bright golden halo at the business end
the moment the flash went off:
lightning! lead
dressed in camouflage he was
neat.beard.militarish. intending
to be a threat maybe pretending
to be a threat who knows
what evil lurks in the hearts of men
of course, the shadow knows,
but that was then on radio
and it was fiction (in a way)
but there he was in 2016
shoving gun in face

and probably still is a year later
more trumped up
with a sense of reality tv on steroids

becoming more legal by the minute
and more difficult to fire
