A Place So Very Far

I’ve been so depressed
about the way things are
that I decided on a rest
in a place so very far.

The now ex-president
climbed into a plane
to become a resident
away from the pain

of watching all his plans
get washed down the drain
by the Hollow Man
who’s filled with disdain

for anyone who differs
with anything he says
and experiences shivers
at what’s in the Hollow Man’s head.

And so in that far off space
I wander to and fro.
It’s actually a very close place
— the place I love to go.

It’s a nearby hiking trail,
but it could be a desert far
for wandering here never fails
to help me flee alternative facts
so bizarre.
