This is my dragon. He found me today.
He had been searching for me a long time.
I lost him many years ago when I was young.
I took a wrong turn. Some had called it life.
So many have died of what they call life,
In vain their dragons searching for them,
I know I am fortunate, unlike them—
My dragon found me and shared his fire with me
Before he breathed his last in the disguise
He had worn all these years calling for me
(Dragons who must hide must also die).
He opened his mouth as if to swallow me,
But only whispered his dream for me—
I forfeited flight when I ran from my dream
But I can still believe his dream in me.

It's not that freedom of speech & of the press are threatened under TrumPutin's tyranny of racism & hatred, though of course they are. It's that they were already corrupted, producing the election's fascist outcome. Mass-media lies & force-fed ignorance have recreated Hitler's hell-hole in America.
Fascism is already vomiting its insanity, attacking life with ruthless homogenization of human differences, threatening all who do not bow down to WHITE RACISM with the extermination of their uniqueness, their diverse intelligence, and their compassion for others not cookie-cut into RACIST robots.
"And intellectual disgrace / Stares out of every human face" -- W. H. Auden
