Watch for Signs
“In 18 months I’m turning over the keys.”
A legitimate successor to him might not qualify.
Perhaps the chief thinks himself free
The Constitutional succession mandate to mollify.
What is his mind’s detection?
What really is he thinking?
Should he think the “wrong” person win election,
An executive order for his continuance could be his linking.
The signs of the times require watching,
For progressive power never wants to relinquish
Its ubiquitous control without botching
Individual freedoms to extinguish.
One day later a third-term he muses
To foreign masses who don’t care.
Patting himself on the back he chooses
Another constitutional brush he might dare.
Be on guard and prepare, you domestic "subjects."
Your freedoms already usurped.
Ruled six years by ideological sects,
Washington, Jefferson, and Henry silenced by left-loud chirps.
Which branch of the tree is now most reviled?
Nine split needing only five?
Their “subjects” they ignore, with law they beguile,
Or the impotent house and one hundred incapable to revive?
There was a countdown
In the “Seven Days in May.”
James Mattoon Scott forced to mount down.
For the twenty January days in 2017, a new order could be in play.
