election grief

Are we Americans in Italy,

in Greece, in Peoria–?

Sex, corruption, real estate — mayhem,

even murder?

Not yet. The orderly transition of power at the top.

Undo all good things, for this suave uneducated ego.

Gold sinks, toilets, faucets, a do-over.

Undo climate change, Iran-nuclear, Russia & Syria,

women’s rights, immigration (build the wall), nix to

globalization. Really undo? Who are you?

Who are you?  Electoral college voted high for you –

the working poor, the KKK, the hate groups, the forgiving

fat women, non-educated…quite a block.

Now perform, old man. Change was your mantra.


Let there be peace.
