889 This Country is Chaos [31 January 2017]

This country is chaos,
years of division igniting
relentless distrust and fear
“Be afraid of this”,
“This could happen to you”,
“You could lose everything”,
resulting in the uprising
of the extreme,
of protect our own
when it should be protect all.

This country is chaos
when the self-styled king
disregards his duty to the highest,
the most revered document.
When daily fits of maniacal outbursts
colors his honor the darkened hue
of cowardice and perceived slights.

This country is chaos
with the only cure
being a dissolution of the order
that has served us well.
With the raising of voices,
and the revolution of truth’s return.
