Poem: On the U.S. Foreign Policy Establishment

by Toney A. Schloss

"Entr'acte: Defending the Indefensible Cache"
the pomposity of this establishment suggests inane;
their station unwarranted, unearned vis-à-vis Iran.
their welcome worn ragged the future fabric,
our shred,
the American design faded on arrival:
forestalled by proxy,
while they, well-heeled, free and easy,
wassail in the D.C. night,
feasting on delicacies and quaffing expensive wines:
31 years and nothing to show,
save the spectre.
dangle the looming dagger
over the unfurling, unfailing rose,
nourished on the blood-soil of martyrs.
flailing vengeance against God
is yours alone.
the undying Flower of the age is Peace.
