The Sunday Poet: William Harney

William Harney
  English Professor William Harney of Endicott College chimes in on the "Trump" thing...

Republicans, Donald Trump, and the Exquisite Corpse

Bent on creating what has never been before,
Participants each draw a
Body part and pass it forward
To be assembled,
Human and monster both,
With its enormous head;
Its shock of orange hair.

Their goal?
To blow up the museums,
Kill the curators,
Hang the judges,
Jail the experts,
Expel the know-it-alls,
Level the playing field,
And, of course, selflessly,
(Because I don’t need to do this, folks,
I really don’t)
Fill the openings at the top.

---William Harney
