As I wrote last year, I will be posting my poems occasionally.

Two Cheers for 2020

The New Year is off with a thud.
Forest fires hit the daily news.
Oceans poisoned with plastic crud.
Our Patriots are doomed to lose.
The Pres. is tempting fate and more
By launching drones in foreign lands.
He’s stirring up the winds of war.
The future rests in parlous hands.
Our governance system is broke.
Enriching few through lies and stealth.
Hardly the way the founders spoke;
They served the Nation’s commonwealth.
—-I think positive, and cross my fingers,
—-But my inner sense of dread still lingers.
