Poetry in The Time of Trump

We wrap ourselves in Stars and Stripes
And hide behind Gods might
Proclaim false persecution and
Pretend weve lost our rights

Humanity and Justice
Are left bleeding in the street
Equality stands silently
While brotherhood just weeps

Im on my knees
Im begging please
Can you forgive us for our sin
I pray for you
To guide us through
This nightmare that were in.

Those who walked before us cry
The man who had a dream
We parrot back the words he said
But dont know what they mean

Oh my Lord
Forgive us for
This ugly thing
That weve become
We turned our hearts
Toward the dark
Instead of toward the Son

Im on my knees
Im begging please
Can you forgive us for our sin
I pray for you
To guide us through
This nightmare that were in.
