Not Only Naive

I’ve begun to delete

Thoughts replete

About our current situation

I cannot stand

For I want no hand

In ruining our great nation

It is with regret

I’ll no longer let

Them ruin my elation

I must try to be

The truest me

And use my imagination

For how to repair

Love, nation, air

And our once fine reputation

I’ll now take my leave

A quite fine reprieve

But with no indignation

I look toward the skies

Hoping we will all rise

Restoring us to our foundation

A melting pot

For those who have, and not

Let love be the culmination

‪Humble Curiosity‬

I am humbly curious

For how we’ve come to this

This point in time

Of fearfulness

And ugliness

And distress

What a mess

But I am willing to hear

Some other address

How we can coalesce

To return to the best

For you, me,

All humanity

Let us see

How good we can

BE

A Renewed Dawning

I seek to be inspired

Not mired

and

Not tired.

No instead I aspire

to raise higher

and higher,

removing the ire

I at times get

from every liar

and crier

that some admire.

I perspire,

staying out of the crossfire

to retire

those who conspire

to acquire

the entire

Quagmire.

Yet I’ll continue as a spitfire

holding the feet of those

most do not desire

to the fire

so that the entire

compassionate citizenry does not tire

and instead preaches to the choir.

That we are the rectifiers

and fortifiers

creating force multipliers

so that the next occupiers

of government that we hire

transpire

to be purifiers,

amplifiers,

and magnifiers

of

dignity for all.

SCOTUS Limerick # 2

‪Kennedy’s news and a Muslim ban back to back‬

‪The Freedoms we all hold dear under attack‬

‪Those opposed must protest together‬

‪In this growing storm of bad weather‬

‪To keep the deck from being more stacked ‬

Fabric of Society

This fragile thread will

Remove the threat

By

Stitching all those

With compassion, empathy,

With finery, not fear

Pulling together

Disparate swatches of humanity

In a beautiful patchwork

Quilt

Of determined,

Concerned citizens

Who cover the dying

monstrosity that is hate

As it takes its last breath

Us Not Them

Wait, wait, wait

Don’t be late

It’d be great

If we could debate

You know

Hold the phone

Let’s change the tone

Go the source

For reasoned discourse

Of course

Instead of

You know, the game

Of placing blame

On the “other” side

So ours can hide

From responsibility

Where TOGETHER only WE

Can be

POSITIVELY

Shaping OUR society

‪Coalesce To Redress‬

Expressing

It’s depressing

That we are regressing

Kind of like undressing

No I mean redressing

Your actions aren’t impressing

Anyone

The resistance coalescing

Almost done

About to stop this messing

With everyone

To reduce humans stressing

Coming undone
