Poetry by Dick Lourie in the aftermath that is Trump.     Emerging suddenly from Hell Adolf Hitler holds a press conference       “I know” he says “your first question is whether I escaped”      his English is not bad (although he seems to have picked up his accent from some 1940s war movie)       “no     this is not an escape” he says       smiling       “by order of the Big Guy himself I am   officially on furlough       call it a victory lap       or maybe a gift of foreign aid from us to you       of course the first battle is won: but the war goes on --       as those Mexican cripples and rapists like to say: la lucha continua -- Himself has asked me to congratulate all of you and to extend our help as needed -- that’s why I’m here now     I’ll tell you as we stood on the parapets of Hell’s watchtowers” (his gift for rhetorical gesture seems intact) “we were shocked to see   the extent of decay in your body politic infested with the stinking shit of political correctness       how it seemed almost too late until this first   surge of wholesome patriotism that has brought some success     but we feared you might grow complacent -- hence the Great Man has dispatched me to -- let’s say -- keep up morale       since all Hell is aware of my record     yes       in the end we lost         but still we sustain the Great Cause: loyalty to political incorrectness       my friends   nations have rotted and empires have been destroyed: show some ‘civility’ show some ‘respect’     ‘have you left no decency?’     till nothing remains but a nest of shrill and   snivelling pansies squealing at me ‘oh you are such a racist!’       don’t be fooled: political correctness is vile weak- kneed surrender to anyone who whines about being insulted       it’s the fear of speaking out     fear even to name the real enemy: radical Jew -- excuse me -- radical Islamic terrorism   friends       the media is obsessed with what they call ‘facts’       but believe me there are no ‘facts’       there’s only their Fake News and our -- as we say in German --‘Unwahrheit’       meaning   ‘Truth’      which is ours alone      to paraphrase that damn faggot Keats ‘all ye know . . . and all ye need to know: truth is hate     rage     contempt and power       hate       rage       contempt and power is truth’ ” pause “and of course” says Hitler “shoot first!      “the wisdom of Truth” he goes on “lies in the ancient proverbs political correctness does not even allow us   to repeat: “the only good indian . . . ’ you know the rest”      he smiles       “on a lighter note I’m reminded of the Gestapo locker room       those boys knew how to banter   ‘hey’ one guy would yell ‘you know what PC stands for? it means Pussy-whipped Cunt-licker’ that bunch was full of laughs” says Hitler “but that’s beside the point       anyway” he looks out at the crowd of reporters “so      as encouragement and -- to be blunt -- also as reinforcement       His Majesty sends me here       call it a continuation   or perhaps better a ‘transition’       you’ve started strong      we will back you up     our strength is in slogans: ‘You’re Politically In- correct And Proud Of It? So Is Hitler --   Join Us! Heil Unwahrheit!’ ”       he looks out at the crowd of reporters       “this will be my last press conference but” he says “I will certainly be       how is it       ‘twittering’ quite often       and in closing       remember the old adage ‘once you make the darky step and fetchit again as he used to he will love it so much that he’ll never   want to stop’ ”    Hitler smiles confidently     clicks his heels     lifts an imaginary glass in an actual toast -- or perhaps some sort of salute: “with my help and with   yours my friends America can become great again! and now” says Hitler “I’ll take no questions”                        Dick Lourie is an American poet who lives in the Boston, Massachusetts area.
