As an antidote to DJT's newest attempt to keep us safe with this executive order: PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES, I offer this broken but unbowed specimen from the Tucson Botanical Garden's Butterfly Exhibit:
Even in the most well-protected spaces, and the Butterfly Exhibit's vetting processes are second to none, shit happens.
That's why the poison dart frogs are in their own separate terraria; they were being squashed underfoot and attacked by their compatriots.
Sometimes, a quarantine is necessary. Wondering why no one has thought of that in relation to DJT? Soothe yourself alongside this beastie, resting on the window, wondering what's outside:
The rest of the world is all aquiver
the tangled, intertwined relationships
between the Reds
(remember when The Russians were The Reds?)
and the USofA can leave you flat out exhausted
but try not to become discouraged.
filled with wonders into which we can sink our probosci.
We might be a bit tentative at first
putting out feelers,
determining if the news is real before we decide to dive in
Or, we might just decide to find a quiet place to rest
trying to camouflage ourselves
while keeping our eyes peeled
for the next tweet storm.
