Rabbit on a stove

Civilization is the most fragile construct known to man; every time it's imported from one country to another the people lucky enough to have it foisted upon them go crazy and elect an ape for govenor.

Take the paint company's logo--Sherwin-Williams, "Cover the Earth"--and pair it with their graphic symbol of a bucket of red paint pouring itself over the globe, and you get the corporate equivalent, first of "America, Love It or Leave It" and then its corollary, "Make America Great Again."

For the first time in a long time (The Civil War?) we are living in a country where we can't believe what is happening is happening.  Even those happy with what is happening, can't believe what's happening.

Civilization's the little rabbit, hiding beneath sagebrush, shivering, its fur catching the gusts of prairie wind, one eye on the monster who's watching it, and one eye on the hole where it will soon go to hide.
