What was really stolen?
Rights of the people to have leadership
that inspires the best in us,
not incites insurrection
What was really the fake news?
Lies from the bruised ego of a loser
that perpetuated false claims of a rigged election
not mainstream reporting
This morning I’d hoped to
sigh a sigh of relief
and I do upon confirmation of the president-elect
but I do so through tears of
what this country has become with
violence unleashed on the Capital
promoted by a sitting president
against our own people,
against our own government
Can we survive these last 12 days of
this vicious, unstable, lack of leadership?
Or will he feel even more empowered to
spew his delusional deceptions,
divide our nation beyond healing?
