a poem meant to wake us up because danger is knocking at our doors

Where presidental tweets end
black and white facts begin.
Imagine our "Agent Orange Leader"
if honest tears streaked his painted on grin.

A nation of self absorbed marionettes
losing our way in tangled strings.
We step on terrorist cracks,
to entice poltical fat cats.

We sip morning coffee over cyber sexual affairs,
ignore dark shadows behind Russian media fairs.
Now the world's children suffer due to our apathy.
A river of innocent blood flows we refuse to see.

These questions I own; for Constitutional reasons.
Lazy summer days move to a dangerous voting season.
We think we show our children the right way.
Is a war being planned to "cleanse" America without our say?
