We’ve Lost

I almost cried again this morning
Reading an article about police
Surveillance in Slate 5 ways to
Think about future technology
Point 5 “the President does not
Control local police departments,
He (and someday She)” that’s when a
Lump in my throat the tears close
Behind is it the reality of who
He is and his suggested police state?
Or the reminder of our country’s sad
Decision when they rejected “she”?
Passing on a decent, good, thoughtful
Woman for the buffoon who needs
A victory tour because his ego can’t
Abide the fact that he lost by
three million clicks yet still he
Derides the press as dishonest while
He spews lies and venom and hate
He won my tears every day so close
to the spilling over all we’ve lost
