Removed

It is said Nixon could look

down and name each political

district and its incumbents

as his plane traversed the country.

When the clouds

obscured the land,

what then? As if it mattered!

The view out the window

had no importance. It might

as well had been a backdrop

unrolled by stagehands

on a movie set,

anyway for Mr. President

to project his tight grip

on the boundaries

power delineates.

Oh yes, that Nixon, he was removed
