Poetry – Trump – The One Game in Town

Trump – The One Game in Town

There’s only one game in town:

Who’s stealing the election?

Trump claimed victory – shouting ‘Fraud’

That he says requires correction.

Yet the corruption seems all one way:

Republican states suppressing registration,

Reducing numbers of polling stations,

Creating long lines and much frustration.

It is they who steal elections

With their underhand tactics,

Claiming that all is fair

In the world of politics.

He who is shouting loudest

Is the biggest conman.

Frying lies, propaganda and threats

In his dark frying pan.

Trump has lost – though he now chooses to dangerously stir up his base with unfounded accusations of fraud. He claims the election has been stolen from him. He’s a sore loser. He’s trying every trick in the book to steal the election – every lie, every false accusation. He’s still stirring up hate and division.

Yet the real theft lies with the Republican states. They have conspired to steal the election. By preventing blacks and poor whites for registering to vote, by limiting the number of polling stations they have tried their hardest to make it as difficult as possible for the Democrat party. That is the real fraud.

One only has to see the ease of registration and voting in Republican areas and the obstacles and long lines, with hours of waiting, in the poor areas.

That’s where the real fraud is!

Poetry – Wear Black

Wear Black

Rev up the hearse,

                Polish the coffin,

Embalm the corpse,

                And bury it quick

                                Before the stench makes us all sick.

Lower your head

                As you work or play.

                                Democracy died today.

Opher – 4.11.2020

It doesn’t really matter what way the result of the US election goes – the outcome is the same – democracy died.

The whole process is sullied, full of corruption. Engineered to make it difficult for tens of millions to vote.

A news media shoving out blatant lies and propaganda as news.

A popular vote that counts for nothing as an archaic system steals the election.

Democracy is bought, sold and discarded.
