Living in Trumpland
Spectral shadows cloud my eyes,
Infinite distance to horizon’s demise.
We mindless children always at war,
Tearing into each other – the loudest voice gains the floor.
Hatred rises in peaks of crimson hue,
Death, mistrust, intolerance…nothing new.
Will sanity’s lessons ever be learned,
As this ravaged Earth is destroyed and we burn?
From nothing to nothing – particles collide,
Moon shapes, moonscapes that dance across soulless blackened skies.
