LIGHT

 

Thunder is the voice

That tells us

What Lightning can do

Thunder markets the splendor

Of Lightning

Glossing over the

Assassination qualities

Of sizzling electricity

Disguising it with its own

Claps and rumbles

Acoustical wowing

While Lightning stealthily

Seeks victims

Sheltering under trees

Or sitting too near

Open windows

We gape at the razzle-dazzle

Light show

And quake at the thunderous noise

Missing the real danger

Almost reminiscent of a

Gaggle? Herd? Murder?

Of Presidential candidates…
