Five-game Power Earthquake

“Zone defense!” say the spotty Americans,
“Strangle immigration for a landslide!”
But mammoth protests sweep the stadiums.

Cherubic candidates telephone for images:
criminals, feminists, Eskimos, terrorists.
Win! Win big! A pennant-clinching ad quake!

An oil blizzard rocks the clubhouse,
holy as a birthday series. Oh flags.
Oh eerie TV. Oh pricey republic.

--Lance Newman
