Note: A reflection on the recent change of leadership in the US.

New Day

Reporting facts 

Not fact-checking lies 

Honesty 

Transparency

The truth

Not crimes 

Someone Who Knows what it is to be bullied 

To suffer loss 

To love 

Not The Bully 

Mocking 

Assaulting women 

Distortion, violence, and lust 

Before …

Daily deceitful action towards 

Personal gain 

Puppet show of shame 

Never-ending thirst 

Self over others 

Murderous intent 

At every turn 

Taking life 

To feed the unsatiated appetite 

Of 

Greed 

Greed: Pulls every string 

After…

Clear day 

Giving 

Providing 

Welcoming 

A desire to do what is right 

This is not (merely) a change of power 

It is a new day 

This light 

Air to breathe 

To see and to hear 

With clarity 

Together 

Truth 

And 

Care

The soul breathes out 

To now not be bombarded 

With the erratic weaponised words of

The cult leading national abuser

(1460 days of propaganda, lies, and harm..)

The world thankful 

Relieved 

Here is the line: No further 

Movement towards: Repair

Space…

Breath

and

Calm

(…*Silence*….)

In which to think

In safety

Towards the horizon 

And the faces of caring …not fear.

And the actions of compassion …not hate.

And the voices of truth … not deceit.

And trusting and loving …

We, Together: Intentionally, Forward

(As the words and hands 

Of the poet – remind us always – to

Marry words and action)

And the words 

Of the poet 

Lead us on …
