**Author’s Note

This is from an ongoing online poetry series I’m doing where I write a poem a week about my favorite horror films. Here is “Stepfather”

Ronald Regan
is our true father.

I am on a mission

to restore
family values,

and the promise
of the America
dream.

Broken families
need to be fixed,

perfected

like The
Constitution.

When I can’t
fix them,

like The Reds;

they needed to
be sacrificed

and
beaten
into
sub-
mission

so we
remain

pure.

So we
remain

family.
