Fascists Among Us

Fascists among us

In the likes of Donald Trump

And his followers

A disgrace to humankind

Yet they live in denial

 

Gullibility

Prevailing in this nation…

In this century

Learning nothing in decades

We are destined to repeat

 

Showing no regret

Is what is most troubling

In this modern day

Racism and hatred live

In their violence and threats

 

Have we learned nothing

Showing little tolerance

What have we become

But laughing stocks of the world

And fodder for terrorists

The Heavens Opened

The heavens opened

And tears fell in a deluge

Drowning out the sun.

 

Show me we deserve its warmth,

The joy we get from its light.

 

There is so much wrong

And none of it is our fault,

Or so we believe.

 

Climate change, its natural;

Pollution, blame the Chinese.

 

Procrastination,

Our answer for everything,

How terribly sad.

 

“It can wait ‘til tomorrow”;

Is our national motto.

 

Yes, heaven opened,

Its tears fell as acid rain,

But it’s not our fault.

 

Leave it all for the children,

We’ll be gone soon anyway.
