There’s a run on gasoline 
everyone’s filling up plastic bags with the stuff
in such short supply
for maybe the next few days

Another war in the Middle East
so predictable which side suffers more losses
what did you think
this shit runs like clockwork

Listening to NPR has taught me
there is such a thing as a third ranking
leader in the people’s house
truly the next victim of cancel culture

In the final couplet images are correlated
except in this instance I got nothing
