Why He Wants It



He wants a parade,

a child who wants a shiny toy.


Americans will be mortified;

he wants because he’s cruel,


Billions will be terrified;

he wants because he’s vicious,


Like a rapist with a child,

he will feel America’s might, his might;

he wants because he’s impaired.






Don Krieger

I have built satellites, worked in the operating room, been in a cult, …

I earn my living as part of a group which is trying to understand and treat head injury.

In my poetry and short blog pieces, I want to express ideas with unambiguous clarity and intensity.

I willingly sacrifice rhyme and meter, art, cleverness, elegance, and beauty for these.
