A Very Bad Smell Indeed

[Like vanishing dew,
a passing apparition
or the sudden flash
of lightning – already gone –
thus should one regard oneself]
        Ikkyu Sojun, C14th/15th

Like vanishing joy,
a  passing aberration
or the midden flush
of sewage –  all raw and  foul –
thus should one regard the Trump.
                                         Any reasonable person (2016)
