Sneaky

Slimy

Creepy

Untimely

No class

Our asses

Not crass

Deals made

In the shade

We been played

My tirade

They think

They have it made

Who We Are

Racialized in our society

Or being socialized in sobriety,

Or drunken ugliness

That leads to this mess

I must confess

To help redress

My part in the

Lifetime of our nation

Conundrum

I wish we were all hypnotized

And it was all humdrum

To see that

It’s better we change racialized

In my, your, their eyes

That we instead become humanized

And come to realize

That we can apprise

All

That

There is but one race

The

Human

One

Lets slow down

Look around

See the

Beings that are

Humans making

Up

Humanity

Dis

Disintegrate trust

Disinterested in the truth

Disgusting displays of power

Disinterred racist ugliness

Distinguished foreign leaders

Distinctive false statements

Disingenuous concern

Disastrous ten months

Discombobulate the masses

Disillusioned voters

Dishonest leadership

Distasteful statements about immigrants

And others

Distrust in the truth

Dissolution of representative discourse

Dissipation of values and morality

Distancing myself

As much as

Disparate thoughts allow

Renewal

The chief deranger

is a clear and present danger

and a big part

of why it gets stranger

everywhere, every day

in every way

Please, we must insist

on getting back

what we’ve missed

as the list

grows longer and longer

Missing leadership with grace,

where followers place

space in their hearts

and do their parts

helping others start

anew

Isn’t that what you

and I should do

Where we can work to renew

this nation, our citizenry

back into

a world’s who’s who

Decision

Division

indecision oblivion

Branch Dividian

all earth citizen.

It’s all a con.

Not just by

the Orange Don.

But his Trumps all.

This is not – a ball,

nor any fun at all,

this constant call

for vitriol.

Against us all

Muslims, blacks,

immigrants one and all.

Unless you’re white y’all

and maybe “Christian” if that’s what you call

all this ribald folderol

behind your wall.

Let’s change

the conversation

for creation

of dialogue,

a prologue

to minimizing this long,

slow slog

and end with an epilogue

of love.

A decision

ending derision.

Putting This Aside

All politics aside

How do we thrive

Stay alive inside

No hide

Or claim

I’m beside

Myself

Hiding on a shelf

Like the that little red elf

Moping

Hoping

It’ll all go away

We can stay out of the fray

Today

And everyday

Then we say

I’m better than them

I don’t hate Muslim

But that’s all you do

Then you say phew

That got me off the hook

I can turn away, not look

Must.

Do.

What.

I.

Can.

Fight through

Do what you can do

Resist

Persist

Help all humans

Exist

Thrive

Be alive

Live

Give
