Fox News turns
clock irrelevant  
as night and day †
meld into fear.  
If no surprises from the †
current Kingís reign †
nor no left-leaning bastion unseated, †
certainly then we should expect †
to see more poor immigrants, †
to read faces of rapists  
in those of the desperate.  
Why must they be so †
Brown? †
What could they be after?  
My comfortable home †
shutters in around me.  
The land upon which it sits †
moans in ancient tongues  
of those long before. †
Why do Brown people still  
come? Who will †
surrender their shutters †  
and cede them  
one more morning?
