Every headline mocking

even as you turn away

refusing to acknowledge

the horrors here.


Speak loudly reapetedly

with passion and spittle


lest the left one see

what the right one is doing.

Lies told so often

that you actually believe


Vehemently argue

toss the words

give them something


that will prove to distract.

What was the right one doing?

That diversions are required

playing to a public fear

it was all organized.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
