I find it offensive that the president’s forces
Find it easier to coerce us,
Slaughter and slander minorities--
Black, Chinese, LGBT people
Than to attack Trump's supporters.
When did it become easier to barricade borders
Than to follow the orders
That wereas issued to protect democracy?
We say “fight for your freedom, for equality”
While allowing the leader to run his own oligarchy,
A tyranny of the patriarchy.
To insight insurrection
Under the pretense of a “resurrection”
Of his own failed election
And fall prey to the way his inflections
Escape our rational detection,
Allow ourselves to be sectioned
Into inaction, safe amidst our factions.
In the end, there is no resuscitation.
There are only fences
Protecting the Trumps and Mike Pences of this nation;
Free criminals who have abandoned their stations.
