I read the news,
it was awful,
filled up with views
made me want to ‘manafort’
my breakfast, lunch and dinner,
so I chose not to eat
the garbage being spewed,
drank clean water all day instead.
We watched a conservative rally,
full arms and gusto
no more of this sally
way toward democracy bust-o.
I wonder about tomorrow,
the next day, thereafter
how do we get past the bullshit,
this scenario we are so not after.
Whose the minority now,
who’s pulling the strings
one clown with orange hair
seems awfully happy to be king.
I stole away from my anger
stood outside in the breeze
looked to the stars for an answer
a Strawberry Moon was my gaze.
I only bring this up to say good night,
beyond the hypocrisy of the day,
when we do look out into the night
sky we are all dependent on the same light.
Cast your eyes upon the moon,
for forever will be yours too soon.
Decisions seem beyond the concept of reality,
or perhaps we speak of truth,
the world we seem to trust and find faith,
is simply lost inside a hypocrisy.
We are a country with mixed messages, mixed races,
all drawn together by the masses,
those that seemingly decide our future based upon
individuals gathered together for the good cause.
Yet, we are caught up in faces,
those that suggest peace, while others contain violent
We have a President.
We have a President,
a person elected by millions capable of running office.
Our society though would like to forget about now
and flash forward to tomorrow.
Is it ironic this is happening in February?
This month gives me pause.
Perhaps if we all stop and breathe and listen to the ridiculous nature
of a controlling society,
perhaps then we might begin to walk freely together.
