RAGE

Where does all this hate come from
Deep seeded rage within?
What makes you want to strike … or mame
Commit such mortal  sins?

Boisterous, foul… seething with hate
Stop the madness …. for heaven’s sake
Glassy eyed…. you look  dazed.
Put down your sword … put down that blade.

Storming through our hallowed halls
You think you’re tough, that you’ve got balls?
Carrying sticks and baseball bats
While proudly wearing your MAGA hats.

In cold blood you killed a cop
You and your vicious, twisted mob
Breaking glass, breaking in
Inflicting pain and torturing.

Don’t you know …. there was no hoax?
They counted every ….. single vote.
What’s your problem?…. What the fuck?
Get back in your pick up truck.

What made you think … it was your place
To show up here …. to paint your face?
Did you come here all alone?
Hell no! You need to go back home.

The FBI will make arrests
Before you’re done …. you will confess
You did all this …. to serve trump’s cause
But all you’ve done …. is break the law.

He didn’t march along your side
When things got rough, he said “GoodBye”
He’ll denounce and he’ll deny
He’ll save himself, he’ll cheat and lie.

You went down a rabbit hole
You gave up your heart and soul
You followed blindly…willingly
Now you’re locked up and he walks free.

  1. A great poignant poem Patty, and this stanza rang so true for me…
    “He didn’t march along your side
    When things got rough, he said “GoodBye”
    He’ll denounce and he’ll deny
    He’ll save himself, he’ll cheat and lie.”

  2. Trump is the symptom of a larger disease we share as human beings. We are the virus infecting our world.
    When will enough be enough or is our greed infinite?
