I understand that you empathize with my situation.
I doubt, however, that you comprehend the depths of my rage and despair –
as I suck it up one more day
watching the most precious symbol of freedom on this Earth slowly sink
beneath the filthy trampling feet of greed and power.
I know you care, like you know I care.
I just don’t think you are quite
as pissed off as I am.
There are things I know I can’t change, and
things I am trying mightily to change, and
things that MUST change, and
I’m not sure any of that CHANGE is ever gonna happen.
What I do know is that the change I was promised
is damn sure not the change I got –
which I suspected when I heard the promises,
and voted for the guy who didn’t win…twice.
