America’s Dreams Dimmed

Change begins
below the surface,
buried in the detritus
of daily life.

Whether an acorn
initiates its path
toward a towering
future as a mighty oak

or an embryo in a womb
edges into human birth,
hope and possibility
for our future launches.

Our country needs
this resurgence of hope
found in smart new voices
with a long-term stake

in the future, who dream
of abundance, peace,
community, innovation,
unsullied by greed,

men and women not fooled
by current political buffoonery,
ready to rebuild a unified America
the way it was always meant to be.

While we wait, our dreams
dim, day by day, regular folks
feel the boots and butts
of greedy Republicans.

Where will it end?

if i wasn't too old i'd leave the country tomorrow. only reason to hang around now is to watch the jail cells close on the sonsofbitches.

rebuilding the country even after that is going to have to be done by the youngers.

Where will it end is the key question, one which I won't be around to learn the answer because it'll take a long time to undo both the psychic damage caused by Trump and the Republican Congressional sheep to the country as well as the actual damage, especially in the courts.

It will end when the next populist wave hits. Hopefully to the left this time, but populist tends not to be realist, so I have no idea how bad or good that change will be.
