Point of Fact

I stumbled on a hidden lair
That housed an ancient beast.
I stumbled on it unaware
While walking west to east.
’Twas in the lair I came aware
Of certain climate change,
Which weighed upon the morning air
Throughout the mountain range.
I found as well abiding there
A war on womankind,
Which cut my heart with cold despair
And weighed upon my mind.
I made an effort to repair
To points less filled with dread,
But tripping over free health care,
I settled there instead.
Among the myths I said a prayer
That I would soon be borne,
Across this world of disrepair
Upon a unicorn.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
