Standing down is not an option
Stepping up will get things done
Don’t give in to false deceptions
It’s not how the race is won.

All the contradictions
The lies …. the bait and switch
Always an agenda
That comes with a new glitch. 

They’ll cheat if it works better
They will boldly lie to you
Nothing they will tell you
Is ever right or true.

How do you fight a monster
Who will stab you in the back?
Who values his white privilege?
Always ready to attack.

He wants to be an autocrat
To  disband democracy 
Only the ignorant 
Long for complacency.

Two faced and hypocritical 
They line the hallowed halls
No longer true republicans
They’re Trumpsters  one and all.

Will right win  out …. in the end ?
Will justice at last prevail?
Will truth …. honor and dignity.
Be enough to tip the scales?
