Searching for the splendor of Horned Larks amidst the manure reminds me of how I examine these days since the inauguration. (420 character 9-liner)

Look carefully:

I examine current events the way I squint my eye at my cornfield

spread so beautifully with frozen cow manure studded with seed,

a banquet for, oh, frabjous day! Horned Larks.

The similarity ends with the studious scrutiny, however.

No elation, no lift of spirit when I tick through the chaos

careening to & fro in my dear country in the halls of power.

Not giving up, I will continue to

look carefully.
