Clown of all Time

It began innocently enough
all thought it was a game
there is no way
voters are too smart
they would not believe that creep anyway.
Commercials abound
tearing down
eroding the very foundation
on which they stood upon.
Clamoring for war
upon silent victims
snarling at the damage done
by enemies real and imagined
until
suddenly everyone
who disagrees
is now an enemy of the state.
he became the face of a nation
which was torn down
rent apart
remade into a haven for some
whilst becoming a nightmare
for the rest of the populace.

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.

  1. That picture is terrifying! Then again, so is what’s going on in today’s world so it’s the perfect illustration. “It began innocently enough / all thought it was a game / there is no way / voters are too smart” — Hopefully the voters have woken up this time around.
