Cabinet Construction

“Cabinet Construction” is a poem about political corruption and cronyism in government. Although I did have a certain political figure in mind upon writing, feel absolutely free to apply it to your favorite corrupt politician, as one person certainly holds no monopoly in that area.

“Cabinet Construction” won a 2nd place red ribbon in “Presidental Politics” at the 2017 Marin County Fair. It appears in the book Armor Against the Dawn. My gratitude to the creative writing judges at the Marin County Fair! Two other poems from this book won ribbons as well. Go read all the county fair winners both past and present by visiting the County Fair Winners category on the blog.

Cabinet Construction

In building his cabinet,
he has hired
not skilled craftsmen,
nor carpenters,
but, a demolition crew.

This cabinet
is not a food pantry,
but it is sure to have rats
scampering within.
