Buyer’s Remorse (Written After The 2016 American Presidential Election)

Remorse is an afterthought.

Bitter aftertaste it wrought.

All the careful preparations 

suddenly without more, bust.
What was thought fertile plain

Now indeed dry desert be 

Remit was to buy original.

Alas, counterfeit you gain
So, every budding buyer beware.

Self-harm it is to spite your face

Cutting off your nose injures none

other than you; jeopardizing more.
