no demagogue for me if you please

No demagogue for me, if you please.

It’s like getting two votes for President on one ballot – I got to vote FOR Hillary Clinton and AGAINST Trump.



I dislike the dislikers

Status Report 245

What I’ve learned from the madness
of the 2016 Presidential race.

I’m intolerant of intolerance.
I hate haters.
Despise despisers.
Don’t like dislikers either.
I’m down on the downers.
Tired of the tired.
Weary of the whiners
and leery of the liars.

I’d like to cheat the cheaters
beat the beaters
and creep the creepers too.

Be so glad when it’s done
and chump’s dumped.

the earth here tilts

Cleveland November

The earth here tilts
more each day
away from the sun
clouds gray what little light is left
days cool
nights chill
yellow and green disappear
under cold lack
settling winter dearth
for spring rebirth

There, 31 days, 31 poems for the Weems/Shaffer/McCarty/Lady/Smith October 2016 daily poem project – a hard task this time because thoughts were sparse and the words weren’t willing.
