The Unhinged Left

 

It’s dark outside, but not dark enough.

The light seeps, the fear is electric.

 

Who prowls the gun shops? A lefty,

A Bolshevik, a Californian, a hippie

 

Driving a rusty van. Socialism is a sword

Seeking to sever the invisible hand.

 

A door swinging beyond the threshold,

Endangering our guarded existence.
