We are members of Rats Ass Reviews online poetry workshop. When we are not critiquing work or congratulating each other, we chew on pencils and scratch our heads. Concerned about US and global affairs under the leadership of Donald Trump, some of us have put those scratched heads together to write a group poem condemning Trump and his administration for actions taken to adversely change policies and gag scientists associated with the US Environmental Protection Agency. As all poetic work should do, our effort has morphed into something more than we anticipated.
