Nobody has bandwidth
To focus on the senators
Who profited from inside information.
We are at that point
In late empire. Justice has removed
Her blindfold to put on
A breathing mask.
It’s a good time for thieves
And rogues. And dirty politicians.
And it’s a good day for poets
Witnessing the birth of new genre.
We’ll all be safe. Besides, we’re in lockdown,
And the pens are full, and the coffee is hot,
And the bookshelves are overflowing.
Again, but broken out of the straitjacket:
