Knowing what lies ahead - a prose poem.
Gathered together
For a concept,
An order.

A broad escapism 
With a brazen utility.

A nation becomes youthful,
Despite 244 years
Of unparalleled confidence
And joyous identity. 

Jovially contrived,
A view of ravaged conscience
Manhandling a deceiver in the White House.

Every criminal now released from jail. 
Law enforcement excuses.

Gun laws permanently changed...
Murders in abortion clinics.

Conceiving of that structured struggle -
And the achievement of lax attitudes.

And souls offering to get by
In these perilous ways.
