Thoughts for a Nation Flirting with Tyranny

by Jim Rapp

In an ideal world
fame and infamy stand on
counter-daises

One praised, one dethroned,
one raised empowered, and one
shown a counterfeit

By strange alchemy
we have turned our trash into
gauzy pseudo-gold

– No absolution
saves those peddling appearance,
declaring it fame –

Better leave its place
vacant than to enthrone a
hoax on fame’s dais
