Hushed by the News

Grabbed by the…

…country.

In some alternative universe,

Somewhere far away, safe,

left behind by some

mordant twist of fate

Reason sits: abandoned.

Thomas Paine

a stranger in this now strange land

so desolate and devoid of

Righteousness.

What would Jefferson do?

Adams? Washington?

Me?

I flip the tattered pages of Common Sense;

Is revolution in the air?

Grabbed by the…

…country.

What do we have left to give?


It has taken me a couple of days to process the "findings" of the Mueller investigation--or rather--Mr/ Barr's summary of that investigation. Filing this under poems I wish I didn't have to write.
