freestyle sonnet #071: CHUMP ERA FATIGUE SONNET EVERYTHING SHUT UP PLZ

(artist: Hal Hefner; don't know shit about him,
but They Live wokeness ya know)

Suffering President Chump fatigue, depleted
by steady stream of executive disorder
enforced by press, plus immediately retweeted
by deplorable creations beyond border

of humane behavior. Plus hashtag resistance
channels frustration into performative acts
more about signifying spunky to distance
self from total corruption. Alternative facts

utilized by all sides, all sites - one lies fits all,
and honestly I'm fucking tired to heart and bone
of all the sanctimony, self-rights, y'all wrongs, all
the dismissive discourse gone nowhere while grindstone

continues to dust people too poor to matter,

too broken to have voice within sheltered chatter.
