Draining the Swamp

Dear Donalds and Fans Thereof I suppose by now you have noticed there is an unfortunate difference between draining the swamp and becoming the swamp. Swamp life promises fast thrills but delivers slow and sure decomposition, decay, dissonance, despair, loneliness at the sadly shared bottom of the top. But, the swamp is also rich with creolization opportunities, polycultural seductions and fertility, cooperative marshes trying to breathe underneath our oil slick toxic ego-incorporated politics. To drain the swamp we must first notice we have become swamped. To drain the Trumps we must first notice we have become trumped.
