Hostile Trading (a found poem)

Hostile Trading

I’m not a fool.
We want to do business with them.

Obliteration like you’ve never seen,
I’m not looking to do that.

I may, I may,
If you’d like me to, I’ll do that.

No, no,
I have the right to do that.

But I haven’t.

Poem found in “Trump Shrugs Off Khashoggi Killing by Ally Saudi Arabia,” The New York Times, June 23, 2019
