A Failure of Imagination: a poem on the January 6 Insurrection

With a nod to Kurt Vonnegut and Bob Dylan, and a call-out with special thanks and praise to Sergeant Eugene Goodman. The threat comes again, and again, and again, rising like the wind itself, the threat of fascism. *The refrain Why? Why, why, why? Why, why, why? repeated twice in the poem should be sung or spoken to the tune of Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind; specifically the second descending line of the two-line chorus, The answer is blowin’ in the wind. Would you like a copy of this poem in chapbook form mailed to you? Message me for info and thank you.
