Josephine Goes Shopping, 1926.  Honor C. Appleton (1879 - 1951)

Man and the expanding universe: art

moral courage died
and corruption’s stench prevailed –
lies erased the truth

my LinkedIn friends keep endorsing me
for Government. But me and Uncle Sam

are a shrinking universe. I’m leaving
the troop that errs, the team that lies,

leaders who destroy lives for sport, as art –
themselves a crime, a sin, a plague. Farewell.
