Meat Lovers’ President

When enemies are
what everywhere you perceive
enemies are
what you shall have
at the gates
swarming the border
teeming across the seas
enemies are what you receive
as increasingly you obsess
over their moves and words
you close yourself off to friends
more convinced daily, rightly
that you have none
no more
than the antelope in death
can consider
the attention paid it by hyenas
an act of camaraderie and compassion
as into pieces
it’s ripped and torn
aware at last
when surrounded
by carnivores
of your usefulness
as meat
