A thought about the choices of the people...
A stream of hope violently builds in might,
emotion thundering through dams and stones.
Infernal hissing truth scalds steam tonight.

Uncertainty of progress flows to bight;
known waters blunt what passioned fervor hones.
A stream of hope violently builds in might.

Intentions, weaving fast, resolve to fight;
impending doom our agony atones.
Infernal hissing truth scalds steam tonight.

Still, ignorant, a bonfire they ignite;
in unison, they strike their flint like drones.
A stream of hope violently builds in might.

Divisiveness burns purity with spite;
harsh bickering bites deep to throbbing bones.
Infernal hissing truth scalds steam tonight.

Seductive is the concept of the right;
inspired belief asunder crushed by thrones.
A stream of hope violently builds in might.
Infernal hissing truth scalds steam tonight.
