Tuesday’s Open Platform

I might have hijacked my poetry blog for a political post (with more to probably come), but I guess if I am looking for a silver lining, it is that I am writing a poem today!  Yay.  I’ve missed writing.  I’m joining with Real Toads for their Tuesday Platform.


Loud voice’s bombast
drowning out peace;

Hateful staccato spewing,
pounding against my heart.

Fear for mankind’s family,
friends, and the world.

Paralyzed in mind;
Helpless as a babe.

Tears falling uncontrolled
numbed with hate’s control,

Where do we go
before freedom is torn away?

  1. I watch on TV the workings of the Transition team. I see only men in dark suits, no women except family members and possibly the campaign director, and no people who ‘appear’ to be minority race or color. Scary.
