Nosism in Iowa

Last year we had a great time passing through Iowa on our road trip.

Last week I noticed something strange going down...

Pluralis Majestatis  (the ‘Royal We’)

Yesterday I saw some Trumped-up clown
some DJ, spinning pluralities,
pretending what seemed 
(as one could identify)     
a basically ordinary guy -
an obviously, blatantly, singular ‘I’,
to be instead
(for reasons hard to see)
amalgam of a multiplicity,
which pronounced itself, vainly, ‘we’.
