In the time of Donald Trump

    If it's loveliness you want, here, take some,
    hissed the black fairy. ..

  People, so humble, all they
  can do is bake things for
  others' consumption: to be
  told, when their success
  has resulted in the shop's
  being acquired -- without
  them -- that they should ex-
  ult to be retrained or even
  resettled, to be useful. 

  No Party is the humane one,

  for very long. If I don't 
  feel the chill, they haven't
  come for me yet. Dare I de-
  pend on them, as strangers?
  How often has this worked?
  Is he a stranger, who does
  not denounce me?
