InFamous National Emergencies

In a land where campaign threats
have been recast as mandated promises,
where pathological divestments
are reinvented as healthy investments,
a green cry goes out

Historians,
please help us out here!
How did Mr. Hitler gain unilateral powers for war-mongering investments
of Germany?
Do I recall something about declaring a national emergency?

Which actually was an international emergency
of his own fascist leadership making

I wonder if there were any more Germans
foaming at the mouth to build a nationalistic wall of soldiers
and armaments,
paid for with their own cooperatively intended taxes
and regulatory fees
and blood
and tears lost
during loss of life
in World War One,
than is the foamy case today

In the USA,
where compassionate boundary issues
have Trumpian infested all Green Commonsense,
that man-made social and language boundaries,
walls,
are economically and ecologically best resolved
through establishing more diversely rich robust webs
of economic/ecological cooperation,
humbly acknowledging we are all on Earth together
or about to tear Earth's climates of health
monoculturally elitist apart.

White patriarchal fascism is a national emergency
already declaring narcissistic war on what's left
of compassionate co-investments
in health care climates,
domestic and international,
internal and external,
personal and political,
economic and ecological.

The U.N. compassionate? Laughable if one ignores the inhumanity ignored by the U.N. and all Western nations as well. There is not one political or humanitarian initiative proposed by any governing institution that is not rooted in the totalitarian DNA for total domination of the human spirit! Good thing Trump happened along. All we got to do is get rid of one man. Voilà, all is well!
