Fake Views

I am as an island.

I make my own laws.

Rather I sign executive orders

With utter disdain.

If any part is taken away

My power is less.

As well as if the wall were brought down.

As well as if the Whitehouse were

Or Trump Tower.

When you laugh in my face

I am diminished

As would any man be

And therefore never seek to know who’s next to die

For it is thee.
