Defensive Action Poem

by William Skink

A poem for these insane times. If you don’t understand the line Trump crossed, and the danger we’re in, I don’t know what to say to you.


the other day my enemy
looked me in the eye
then shot him till he died

I heard there was a warrant
out for my arrest
I decided to de-escalate
and bought a bullet-proof vest

when the SWAT team came
to take me from my home
I declared my hope for peace
and launched a lethal drone

the incendiary device
took the SWAT team out
peace had been achieved
of that I have no doubt

so if you have an enemy
who exhibits mal-intent
take quick, defensive action
with wrath that’s heaven sent
