Rough Justice

When Donald Trump says

“The Republican National Committee
they’d better get going

because I’ll tell you what
you’re going to have a rough July
at that convention”

it's really not his fault
that most of his words

are accompanied by a thinly-veiled overtone
of tiny-handed violence

(Oh wait a minute

yes it is.)
