Playing the Fiddle

Riding off into the Ivory Palace sunset, in a pitch-black limousine, no less Hear the heavy metallic chariot roar, leaving exacerbated fumes echo deplored Aural palette, enamel pestilent pain on burnt crimson background grain Scorching prairie brush fire was the cruel comfort desire It’s aghast portrait in pandemic grief, pyramid scheme exit of paucity relief The curtain call, pulmonary rating king is a modern-day Nero His favorite numbers (violin strumming) are the printed zeroes Fashioning a Fourth Reich, naked emperor be blew Lenin unsound Ballot dropping the psych, bosom burning the divided house down With a teary grift posturing diddle, Amerikan Nero is playing the fiddle Rearview rolling one last Rublecon riddle, carny Fahrenheit was the plucking piddle Crumbling democracy was brimstone seen through the smoke Ash trail of hypocrisy left an urn nation crematorium stoked 12-29-20
