What journeys
you’ve made,
spontaneous
flights taken!
No longer simply
ensconcing
travel and progress,
you’re now
transported
by pent-up, righteous
anger.
In the ancient world today,
especially, you
chasten statues of
tyrants, fly
at dictators.
Your effect
on George Bush
is the opposite of
salutary.
Besides, never
before were you so potent in
the singular.
From comfortable
accomplice in dailiness
you’ve become an
anti-offering.
