Explicitly Sexy
A Trilogy by M. L. Rinehart


from Pippa Passes

Robert Browning (1841)

The year’s at the spring,
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hill-side’s dew-pearled;

The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn;
God’s in His heaven—
All’s right with the world!

On Thomas and Kavanaugh

Martin Rinehart (2018)

The year’s at the fall,
And day’s at the eve;
No TPPs call
And Paris we leave.

We were a great nation!
Now Trump’s unfurled.
Our God’s on vacation.—
Alt-right’s not His world!
