Poetry – Divided

Divided

Divided

                By Hate

                                Divided by

                                                Trump.

Inflamed

                With lies

                                Conspiracy

                                                Theory

Disbelief

                In science

                                Experts

                                                Truth

New hope

                For unity

                                Fairness

                                                Decency

Opher – 3.11.2020

Today the USA formally pulled out of the Paris accord. It plans to frack, to burn coal and oil and pollute. It plans to add to global warming. It gave up its leadership role.

Trump put short-term gain ahead of long-term thinking. The cost to the future is immeasurable. The costs will be enormous. Every fire, flood and hurricane, fuelled by global warming, will be set at his feet.

Today the USA is defunding the WHO and undermining the UN.

Today the radicalised terrorism of the white supremacists was empowered. Today hate was endorsed.

Today the news is fake, propaganda streams out in partisan lies.

Where is the hope?

I'd like to hear from you...
