Blank Sheets of Paper

How can so many show fealty
toward one who shows only cruelty —
callous indifference to or pleasure in
causing pain and suffering?
He cares about nothing
but himself
and who is he —
a vapor,
a blank sheet of paper,
tabula rasa,
an embarrassment to America.
Are the followers getting a thrill vicarious
at the pain of all the rest of us?
“Father, forgive them
for they know not what they do,”
those, like their paper savior,
blank sheets of paper
burning through and through…
to nothing more than ash.
