67 Days 16 hours 10 minutes – Let me be clear
Let me be clear
there is nothing more dear
than the privilege of voting
I for one am hoping
the days go by even faster.
The fear of more of the same is a disaster.
We will not really know
how many of us will show
for the Corona Virus may still be alive
killing us at a high rate
who knows how many of us will survive.
Then, we need to beware
of those who do not care
and contribute to our collective despair.
Right now, as I write
so many are in a fight
with a monster hurricane
I pray for their well-being
but the devastation will be difficult to sustain.
Then, we continue to face
the unrest about race
The violence is a disgrace.
I have said this before
We need to get together
stronger and more united than ever
We need to open our eyes wide
see the truth and the need
for our leaders to truly lead
and focus on resolving problems
stop the ridiculous rhetoric
and start dealing with
the challenges ahead.
Miracles are real, But we can’t wait
There is an old saying,
We also need to help ourselves.
Only 67 days remain,
I will continue singing that old refrain,
“Come together right now!”
Our democracy needs us to come together.
God bless the suffering right now.
God bless the United States of America!
