Politics and Unsharpened Pencils

The dark gray graphite snapped

Against my freshly torn notebook paper

Donald J. Trump is now the 45th president of the United States 

Instinct kicks in and I

Panic

Worry

Wonder

Why do I feel so unsure about the future?

Then again why shouldn't I?

We have progressed this far as a country 

And now...

A human sized cheeto has been elected to erase our accomplishments 

Now we're back on square one 

They say 

Let's see what he'll do

And so I wait...

Only to see

families and Communities being torn apart

                      Humiliation of women

        disintegrAting international relations 

       rejection Of global warming

                   diScrimination and radicalism

So tell me 

How much longer should I wait? 

No

How much longer should WE wait

Until our country is once again 

A respected member of the global community?

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
