A Pretend Demagogue

Bona fide demagogues ask, tell,
and then send others off to jail or hell.
Scientists are told to change their story
and if they refuse, they are
eliminated from work at the least,
and, perhaps, sent on to glory.
Fortunately, for us thus far in
the United States, the only threats
out of one pretend or wannabe demagogue
are the manic tweets of insipid epithets.
