a nation speaks…

we shall not forget
the venom in your words
nor
how we’ve heard
you
see
us
as sheep
to be herded
with lies
and
foolish promises
oh
revenge
is so much sweeter
when
the prey thinks
the game is
done
and
such pleasure
will be felt
as
the smugness
is erased away
from your face
as you
suddenly embrace
the cold steel
of tomorrow
that will build
a cage
around you
soon
than
later

  1. From the ripe age of 75 and a half, I almost feel sorry for them when they will have to look back on their lives in contemplation of life’s meaning and honor. This is one of the tasks they will need to complete as they move closer to death. To know that forever their name will be followed by “s/he voted for no witnesses and acquittal even though s/he knew Trump was guilty as charged.”
