The Mouse That Roared



Tyrant, twit, fat boy, rocket man,


he will give up

the bombs and rockets

he never had,

shut the test site

he already destroyed


for a US President

with no purpose


no care

but wealth and attention,


no standing

but that he can

destroy the world.


Kim will accept the money

that could uplift his people

from one who cares nothing

for his.

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.
