Fascist Poem

Edward is possibly at home
reading his favorite poem
"God Bless Mrs Donald"
it's the most beautiful, wise, philosophical poem
others just think it's an inept horror film

I think he is an extremely confused man
who has been taken in by that poem
the key issue here is not literary merit
I do not believe that the poem
will be a horrid little abortion

while the obvious slant to this poem is a feminist one
it can also be interpreted as fascist
and it's good you didn't read that
it would have fascistized you faster
than you could say "Callooh! Callay!"

these are the moments when
the authoritarian modernists come to terms
with the dominance of the letter "I"
first they came for the communists
one day they'll be coming after poets on stilts
