Waiting for the Worms

Falling through the universe at the speed of life

By David Glenn Cox

Well, Donald Trump finally got his wall.  Eight-foot high fencing around the White House complex to keep the Cheeto safe from the American people. No more bunker runs, this time he’s called in the secret police from the bureau of prisons to defend the perimeter from the American public. Ersatz SS officers and gestapo wanna be’s while actual Generals condemn the Cheeto’s actions.

“Eins, zwei, drei, alle
Ooh, you cannot reach me now
Ooh, no matter how you try
Goodbye, cruel world, it’s over
Walk on by

Sitting in a bunker here behind my wall
Waiting for the worms to come
In perfect isolation here behind my wall
Waiting for the worms to come”

Cheeto has declared the real America as inside the fence line of the White House all else is enemy ground. He’s sent out the bat signal and waits for a response as Republicans scatter like cockroaches from a kitchen light. They are in a tight spot as they can’t defend him and dare not go against him. Trump threatens to campaign against Lisa Murkowski in 2022, but will probably be at least a year into his Federal prison sentence by then.

Hey kids! Are you bored with nothing to do today? Now with Mattel’s “Tin Pot Dictator Kit”, you can be just like a real Tin Pot Dictator! The kit comes with everything you need! Lots of fencing, guns, tear gas cardboard cutout army troops and a real Faux news megaphone! Everything you need. Show those reds and commies what for battle Antifa in the streets! It’s hours of fun for all ages. Insanity and escape helicopter sold separately.

We have reached the point of no return, and the game should be officially declared over. Satire is no longer possible as satire is based on stretching reality and there is not much reality left to stretch. George Will and George Bush have spoken out against the Cheeto. Great job fellas, thanks for playing along like some German politician in 1945, “I don’t know if Hitler is doing a good job.” The Republican Party is forced to eat from the shit banquet Trump has laid out for them.

China, Hunter Biden and the deep state and it’s all gone wrong. All the plans for reelection out the window because one innocent black man is murdered by police. What’s wrong with these people! Don’t they know I am a billionaire? Don’t they understand I’m a King? I’ll show them who is boss! I’ll call out the Army!

Ten days in and the non-violent numbers grow. Some police departments have shown restraint remembering Custer’s negotiating technics. Other’s like the New York Police Department have declared their own range war against the citizenry. The thin blue line mentality, if we don’t beat them down the monsters and mongrels will take over the city and then you’ll be sorry.

“And then many things became very clear… we learned perfectly that the life of a single human being is worth millions of times more than all the property of the richest man on earth.”
― Ernesto Che Guevara

Orwell eat your heart out; Huxley go to hell! What is a book anyway Bradbury? I guess in a time of a global pandemic and economic collapse it’s nice to have something to distract us. The dystopic inversion of protesters bringing us together while the President of the United States does his level best to tear the country apart. Davy Crockett defending the Alamo or Groucho Marx defending Margaret Dumont it takes on the surrealism of an Ingmar Bergman film.

I must leave the bunker!

“You cannot go, it’s not safe up there.”

I must retrieve Binky.

“But he’s only an orange plush Teddy bear.”

Yes, but he is loyal, and I can trust him. I have no one else I can trust they have all failed me! All the others have failed me.

“But he has sawdust for brains!”

Yes, we think alike.

The Cheeto is gone now leaving behind only a jibbering mass of orange goo mumbling about crowd size. His Presidency is over, nothing to do now but sweep up and wait for the worms. The teeth are stripped from the little gears, and the little bird no longer emerges to chirp on the hour. He is isolated and dangerous, reckless and irresponsible. He would like nothing better than an opportunity to hurt people to show he is a tough guy. The people have turned on him, and the Pentagon has turned on him. Without knowing it or understanding it, the Cheeto has made America great again and once Trump is finally gone, and the fences come down and the troops go home we can make America greater still.

“We’re waiting to succeed and going to convene outside Brixton
Town Hall where we’re going to be
Waiting to cut out the deadwood
Waiting to clean up the city
Waiting to follow the worms
Waiting to put on a black shirt
Waiting to weed out the weaklings
Waiting to smash in their windows
And kick in their doors
Waiting for the final solution
To strengthen the strain
Waiting to follow the worms
Waiting to turn on the showers
And fire the ovens
Waiting for the queens and the coons
And the reds and the Jews
Waiting to follow the worms

Would you like to see Britannia
Rule again, my friend?
All you have to do is follow the worms
Would you like to send our colored cousins
Home again, my friend?

All you need to do is follow the worms”

– Roger Waters
