To the Trump Nation After the Paris Accord Disagreement

The head of a white praying mantis manifests on your table 
it’s a breakfast plate
eat eat dead meat aborted chicks
wheat toast and cow fat, sip your coffee carefully, the beans
Were picked by Colombian slaves and you need your strength
to cut down another thousand trees
for the toothpicks
to pick the bones in your teeth, socialists will need the wood
For the national bonfires to celebrate the end of plutocracy, 
oh India, India,
where have your spectacular tigers gone,
sucked up into planes, trucks, cars purring in fossil fuel
Will the pandas tomorrow have bamboo, how do
the Chinese love Lao Tzu
chasing power like sweaty pedophiles children in church--
Happy birthday Everyman genius to fool born today
Could stand on the stinking horizon choking on air 
ask why you fouled the rivers
the seas, shat in your own beds.
Eat what they give you my darlings, kangaroo burgers
Grilled fingers of ape dipped in dolphin blood
you will need more
than new accords to fix what's done when it's done
sons of industry daughters of war conned by lies, pretty words

Pretty as an oil spill, give us back what you stole, the future
