A Room of My Own: "Game Show, 2024"

The First Entry

The ghost of bygone days is whispering into his right ear, "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I'm possible. This is America."

in the gathering dark ...
boxes of files
secured by the FBI
as fans shout, Trump 2024

FYI: NBC News, August 8: "FBI search at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home tied to classified material, sources say"

Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! 

-- Former "president" Donald Trump who was impeached twice and took classified documents o his Mar-a-Lago residence

written in response to The Hill, August 9: Former Nixon White House counsel: Trump comparison of FBI search to Watergate "doesn’t work at all"

All the President's Men ...
the murmurs of "that's it"
through the recreation room
of the long-stay psych ward

FYI: All the President's Men, 1976 award-winning film about the Watergate scandal, was selected in 2010 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Any resemblance to actual events or locales or real persons, is NOT coincidental. 

the back-and-forth rush
of a patient's monologue
a third run ...

FYI: This haiku could be read as a prequel to the following one:

a third run ...
murmurs of assent ripple through
the psych ward lounge

a squirrel darts
back and forth on the fence 
in twilight shadows
on one side, the flag hung upside down
on the other, Trump 2024

FYI: Business Insider, August 13: The far right is calling for civil war after the FBI raid on Trump's home. Experts say that fight wouldn't look like the last one.

The Republican party has long portrayed itself as the defender of "law and order," but the aftermath of the raid has seen GOP lawmakers like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene call for defunding the FBI.

Greene has also made references to "civil war" on social media as her Republican colleagues compare the FBI to the Gestapo and depict the raid as the type of thing that only happens in "third world" countries.

Meanwhile, pro-Trump internet channels have seen a spike in talk of civil war since the raid.
