‘PHOBING AT THE MOUTH
He loomed over Hillary like a monkey in heat
Was this a grope-able moment? What if he’d
grabbed her by the pussy? “Grab them by the pussy.
You can do anything.” (Donald Trump on women +
the perks of fame) Jane Goodall expert on chimp
behaviour studied his non-verbals the chimp-man
body language: naked aggression loud squawking throwing
feces thrusting of chest + pelvic region
It seems that under the ill fitting suit +santa-red tie there
resides an un-evolved iteration of humankind Before
agriculture +religion +standing up on hind legs This lowest
donald-denominator has always been lying in wait Think Il Duce
Think Idi Think about America as sleazy reality tv How will the land
of the free ever be taken seriously by the short men in the East?
One baby faced +chubby wielding missiles +Dennis Rodman The
other beady eyed +perpetually flexing flaccid muscles often wrestling
with a bear Soon the echo of laughter from terrorists in caves will
ricochet through Aleppo which will cease to exist in another 90 days
(Globe+Mail October 2016) And Hillary’s perma-smile will deepen as
a strapping young man in a blue suit crouches beneath her desk –
O America land of equal opportunity
