The Lid Has Come Off The Pot

Each and every day the brainwashing of one third of the US population continues. For those who have kept a lid on their self righteous hypocrisy, Trump has given his endorsement to expose what's in the pot. He continues to tear away any sense of civility in favor of his version of who and what Americans should - or shouldn't be. His hate and racism, along with his lies and bigotry, has infected those who have a deep inner sore. But with an everyday dose of Trump's hate, those wounds will fail to heal. Trump's cult like followers are digging in deeper and deeper to protect what they fear the most…their identity, along with their perception of what Trump has promised to give them.

We democrats recognize the utter failure that has been put upon us and our country. We all need to work together - to right the ship. We are the inclusive party. We are open to new ideas. We believe in science and technology. We offer love, not hate. We are realists. And the best part of "us" is that we believe in each other. Together we can pull the weeds of yesterday and become the blooms of tomorrow.

The Pretender

The pretender walked down the stairwell
With his famous face - almost tan
His long red tie making its statement
Then those dreadful words were uttered
Leading to a crucial moment in time
Instantly mindful of an impending disaster
Forthwith a moment of angst and unease
A time to fear the cost of civility
And to witness the loss of gains
Many things will slip backwards
And other doings will be eliminated
Soon to be in the midst of threats and spite
And days of hate and bigotry
Still - time won't change the pretender
And while waiting for an ending
New beginnings are waiting also
Thus we must not allow the liar in chief
To change the very best in us
