Twenty two years had passed  by

She blinked, and a lifetime had passed

She started this job as a lark

She never thought it would last

Remote,

in the reflection of cold close 
yet distant shop windows, 
his final journey along the 
Hard Time Road
walking alone, 
unforgiven, no home
for the rest of his natural life

Where the stars shining bright

With frost blade flanks

From mouth and nose steam

dear religious and atheist Trumpians,

A fool in executive office
