Frail Cult Broken

Outside the peninsula's first church,
three surprise assassinations.
Seismic family collapse.

Styled military pomp eclipsed
undercover mourner troves.
Absent bugles, hometown strategists

ordered laboratory discipline.
A toppled blouse earthquaked
history's registered desire.

--David Stinson

Violence marked his rise, rule and fall
Vast ice shelf collapses in the Arctic
No Pomp for a President in Repose
