July Poem 8

The Times wrote, in March,

The website Infowars

Presumably engaged three little trees

And sat holding treasure

In the forgotten woodpile it supports.


Then, the first little tree wanted to be severed

To form the pretty tables.

The first tree was murdered

Because he was ineligible.


June Schoolar had shown

A selection of figurines

Portraying images from a folktale

In which the second tree knew

He was generally pleased

About beams yanked from Mr. Jones

To correlate for Trump politically.


How well did the third little tree do

With its attraction toward belief

In conspiracies? It carried claim

That thousands served in this degree.

But not when mom or Melvin sat

Down on the rock and watched.
