I know these things to be true . . .

"One can draw a straight line from the young man who pinned down a terrified teenager and walked a blind man into a closed door, to the adult who put the family dog in a kennel and strapped it to the roof of the car, to the businessman who laid off hundreds of people, cancelled their health benefits, and paid himself millions while their company went bankrupt."

"In bombers named for girls, we burned
the cities we had learned about in school."

Thinking about Maurice Sendak today . . .

. . . and recalling a Jack Prelutsky poem for the kiddies:
Its Fangs were red with bloody gore.  
Its eyes were red with menace.
It battered down my bedroom door, 
and burst across my bedroom floor, 
and with a loud resounding roar
