    Engulfs the landscape with a breath of fire;
    such are the dreams of our new toddler king:
    with hate and fear to fuel our funeral pyres,
    engulfs the landscape with a breath of fire
    beyond the pale. Such are his heart's desires:
    he takes it all, then destroys everything;
    engulfs the landscape with a breath of fire.
    Such are the dreams of our new toddler king.

    From SOULLESS:
    “You turds ready?”
    “You’re a real idiot, Hank,”
    “You just finding that out?” He grunted as he heaved his shoes into the tree. They caught on a branch maybe four feet below the pink ones.
    “Congratulations, dumb ass,” I said. “You just wasted a great pair of shoes.”
    Eric stood up, walked over to Hank and patted him on the shoulder.
    “Don’t listen to him, Henry,” he said. “Now you’ll live forever.”

    Such are the dreams of our new toddler king
    To let the world ring with his great ‘I am
    The fount from which all edicts spring’
    (Such are the dreams of our new toddler king)
    ‘To my feet, minions, your tributes bring’
    (Though in a rage he’ll fling them from his pram)
    Such are the dreams of our new toddler king
    To let the world ring with his great ‘I am!’

    To let the world ring with his great ‘I am!’,
    he scourges the earth, the lamb, and the air.
    There isn't a group that he will not scam
    to let the world ring with his great ‘I am!’.
    Sycophants gather to join in his jam.
    He puts his heel on the poor in his care
    to let the world ring with his great ‘I am!’.
    He scourges the earth, the lamb, and the air.

    He scourges the earth, the lamb, and the air
    with breath that reeks of wolfish consumption.
    In his tower so high, deaf to despair,
    he scourges the earth. The lamb and the air
    are his commodities; no longer shared.
    "This land is my land" - the fat presumption.
    He scourges the earth, the lamb, and the air
    with breath that reeks of wolfish consumption.

    With breath that reeks of wolfish consumption,
    It’s time to take stock and start out afresh:
    Fluoride and flossing don’t take much gumption.
    With breath that reeks of wolfish consumption,
    Cut back on booze – nor is it presumption
    To say eat far more veggies and less flesh.
    With breath that reeks of wolfish consumption
    It’s time to take stock, and start out afresh.

    Your rhyme. Your seed. Your keen pentameter.
    Cells with resounding heart you must refresh.
    It’s time to take stock and start. (Out afresh
    of ideas, I stake what I enmesh,
    extend and shake for flakes of Demeter.)
    It's time to take. Stock and start out afresh
    your rhyme. Your seed: your keen pentameter.

    Your rhyme, your seed, your keen pentameter
    takes valiant lead. In times of apathy
    remind naive goslings: do not peter
    your rhyme, your seed. Your keen pentameter
    draws the daisies broken stanzas deter.
    Color graying mountain sides gallantly.
    Your rhyme. Your seed. Your keen pentameter.
    Take valiant lead in times of apathy.

    "Let's resurrect this bad boy!" she whispered tentatively.


    Take valiant lead in times of apathy.
    Indeed, these are the times that try men's souls:
    turbulent times, 'alt-facts' twisted, and blatant fallacies.
    Take valiant lead in times of apathy;
    the reigns are loose (as are the man's own faculties).
    Stand up! As long as 45 controls,
    take valiant lead. In times of apathy,
    indeed, these are the times that try men's souls.


    From SOULLESS:
    “You turds ready?”
    “You’re a real idiot, Hank,”
    “You just finding that out?” He grunted as he heaved his shoes into the tree. They caught on a branch maybe four feet below the pink ones.

    Indeed, these are the times that try men's souls
    and time is running out to make amends.
    But still we grouse, and spew our vitriol.
    Indeed. These are the times that try men's souls;
    instead of love, it's venom we extol.
    Our animus will kill us in the end;
    indeed, these are the times that try men's souls.
    And time is running out to make amends.
