Candidates from Hell

The candidates from hell stand tall and say
they want to build a wall around the troubled land
that they claim their vengeful god ordained for them.
Their heaven — they will turn it into hell —
will be a land of evil where they wrap
themselves in flags pretending what that means
is that they care about the people they are scaring
into hating other groups so they won’t see
that they vote away their chance of living free.
