Country Lost

I don’t know what to do

I look around and don’t recognize what I see

A country where anger and hate took precedent

What I fought for was freedom

What I fought for was equality

What I fought for was truth

What I fought for was honor

The vitriol, the anger, the chanting, the lies, the bullying

I can’t stand it

That was what it took to “win”

That we will ignore the interference

That we will ignore Russia’s disinformation

That we will ignore the FB I’s all too convenient intervention

That we will ignore the Republican’s flat out interference

That we will ignore the Republican’s special hearings that were uncalled for and without result

That we will ignore the Republican’s purposeful and articulated voter suppression

That we will ignore actual conflicts of interest

That we will ignore actual lies

That we will ignore actual bullying

Leaves me in despair

I don’t recognize this country

Despair, pain, hurt

We were supposed to be better than this

A shining city

The city is dull and falling

My hope shattered
