When They Came
When they came,
some rushed forth to welcome them,
invited them to brunch.
Others got their shotguns
and other more powerful weapons,
determined to destroy the enemy,
an eminent threat.
Congress got deadlocked,
could not reconcile their contrasting
finally went home to poll their supporters
to determine what their chances
were in the next election,
and to collect contributions.
And some denied that anything
unusual was happening,
claimed the event was fake news,
a hoax concocted by the opposition,
keep on watching the game
on their sets.
