Those who cannot  remenber the past are condemned to repeat it.
                                                                   George Santayana

The again of it couldn’t be anticipated,
not while it was beginning.
This time would be different;
the correction had been made.
The pendulum had swung.

Exceptionalism at last.
Then, just a different set of clothes,
a new vocabulary.
But the same meaning underneath;
such a sly and sneaky thing.

A rush for repetition;
re-create that relief.
Drawn in by the ruse;
Disregard, deride, disparage.
Santayana smirks.
