Euphemism

while eyebrows were raised,
the leader claimed excellence.
his base affirmed him.
the vast majority cringed
at plans deemed purely ersatz.

to put it nicely…
ersatz — a euphemism
for nature’s refuse:

    they stand Strong
in opposition wHile
      the constItution 
      suffers aTtack.
