A Fascist Symphony

Emboldened by the brazen bigotry of his bearing,

he betrayed the people who gave him his power,

a democracy broken by a peering, prying, lying

leader and furthering his feathering by freely

paving a patterned pathway in bribes and scandal.


Helpless  we watch and wearily we retweet or 

write to those who should be able to help, but

their hands are tied by a shocking symphony

of singing sycophants and silently those who

could form an opposition foolishly hum along


to a tune played on strings made from the gut of

the poor and a wonderful woman, who sought to

help her son thrive, starved, silent, while the beats

of the drums called her illegal and filled her with 

the cacophony of self interest and a cruel crescendo


of hatred, and still the few make rules for the many

and instil racism and misogyny, mistaking money

for policy, and loosing upon the children of humble,

heartwarming folk, fighting for a far fairer force,

the fascist salute of idolatry and the evil of eugenics.

margins are a great place sometimes because it is where change happens fastest but it is also a horrible place when we are stuck in them and grace is the moment when we can see that someone cares.
