The dark gray graphite snapped
Against my freshly torn notebook paper
Donald J. Trump is now the 45th president of the United States
Instinct kicks in and I
Why do I feel so unsure about the future?
Then again why shouldn't I?
We have progressed this far as a country
A human sized cheeto has been elected to erase our accomplishments
Now we're back on square one
Let's see what he'll do
And so I wait...
Only to see
families and Communities being torn apart
Humiliation of women
disintegrAting international relations
rejection Of global warming
diScrimination and radicalism
So tell me
How much longer should I wait?
How much longer should WE wait
Until our country is once again
A respected member of the global community?
