NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS


I hate what is happening in our country!

How much more room is there?

Is there any space for more divisiveness,

disrespect to our 200,000 dead souls,

lies and more lies,

hatred, violence,

stringent blows to our Democracy,

hypocrisy, autocracy, a failed bureaucracy

How much more can we endure?

I started this poem with the words

I hate!

I mostly hate hate,

No matter what happens!






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!
