A Burgeoning Autocracy

The U.N. rapporteur
was told not to interfere
and to go to hell.
What did he tell?
Only that the president of the Philippines
is full of beans
for ousting the chief justice summarily
giving democracy a blow squarely
on the chin.
What does Trump think of him —
Duterte, the strong-arm president?
He admires him to a great extent,
just like Putin and other dictators
which should give us the jitters
because what is happening in the Philippines
could be happening here if given the means.
So, fellow citizens of our great democracy,
get out the vote in November
to save us from a burgeoning autocracy.
