'Satan Exulting over Eve.'
(Image by William Blake (Public Domain))
  Details   DMCA

Reputation is everything, they say.

The trick's to aim your pointer finger first:

deflect, distract, control the narrative;

bring the table of values to the hive;

keep pushing it from bad to worse to worst;

keep pushing until they lynch him, hooray.

Satan started this tactic with his Pride.

Defenestrated from stained glass heaven --

God was said to have had enough of that,

sent the presumptous prick packing. What!?

he cried. He couldn't believe it. And then,

exiled for sin, 'He' despoiled Adam's bride.

It's a world of disinformation now.

Can't tell a progressive from a cow.
