Serengeti

In White House concerts
the obeisant sing
for the dark Messiah
and his chosen few,
while in troubled
foreign lands
the aggrieved pray
to be saved
from his flying monkeys
without a heart.

On the Serengeti
a warthog circles a
snarling leopard cub
and guts it out of an
ageless animosity.

There evenings are
always blood red
and beautiful
