The man in the apartment next to me
over ninety, WWII veteran
hard of hearing
talk radio, the background of his day
Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity
relentless rage pounds through the wall
fear it, fear it, fear it
ebola carrying ISIS terrorists
streaming across our porous border
while our socialist Kenyan president
spends his days playing golf
“can you believe it”
screams a voice on the edge of hoarseness
“No” I whisper and
I put on my noise cancelling headphones
and Mozart’s Serenade in B flat
