There was an America

before he ever decided

to dibble and dabble

into politics.

 

There was an America

before he decided

to bluster

and rage

and castigate

and lambaste

and fingerpoint

and name call.

 

There was an America

before he decided

to throw out catchy

slogans

and schoolyard

taunts.

 

There was an America

Before his division

Separation

Isolationism

and denial.

 

There was an America

before he ever took

a seat in the big chair-

 

and there’ll be

an America

when he leaves.

 

 

11/5/17

Remember when we were

kids

playing hide and seek

and how we could run

to home base and yell

“Safe”?

 

Movies,

clubs,

bkie paths,

baseball fields,

parades,

marathons,

worship,

synogogues,

mosques

churches-

 

seems like there

is no home

base,

no place to yell

“Safe.”
