Zen and the President

IMG_2130 copy



“He’s so desperate for approval”


He’s so desperate for approval,

so insistent,

so in-your-face about it,

so self-congratulatory,

so self-praising,

so look-what-I-did,


look-what-I’m-going to do,

so Twitter,

so Facebook,

so LinkedIn,

I recoil,

like the sadist who won’t give it to her

or him.


Zen’s not this kind of self-centered.

-Dick Allen
