Chaos in the Mall

The president of the so-called free world
is throwing fire crackers round the shopping mall
like a toddler in a temper tantrum who has somehow
got his hands on a gun.

Screams echo round the shops and corridors
people cower behind their shopping trolleys
“Muslims! Mexicans! Terrorists!”
shouts the president of the so-called free world.

I creep up behind him, pushing my trolley
that is laden with hummus and tacos.
I try to calm him down
but he throws a firecracker in my face.

And then I wake. 
To my readers in the USA, if you haven't voted early, please vote today. It's not my election, but this one, more than ever matters to the whole world.
