Presidents Brought Forth on the Tops of Tanks



The commandants look down onto history as their
.....play-thing
They enter its pages on the tops of tanks

And they fell years, fainting, to sink into the depths
.....of smallish places

The feigning masquerades of all of their Official Pens
Dip into the depths of pollen-stuffed cups
And kneel in the fragrant servitude,
Awaiting the coming of the rot of time

All ornamentation flakes away from their names
Their names remain corroded, adhered into the steel
.....of cannons
These are the presidents brought forth on the tops of tanks
