WORLD LOST

Promise of change

and the world

stays the same,

spins backward violently.

The uproar of protest

was silent screams

into the night,

gone unheard

and easily ignored.

How can we not

just give up,

curl up and disappear

like they all seem

to want.

The world lost

and the fools won –

greedy, white male power.

President elect;

permission to kill

given by the people for the people.

Only people

with proper values

and narrow minds –

not the ones

who suffer and die.

Is it a choice

when one quits

and no one counts?

Repeating the past,

no lessons learned.

So much was lost

in twenty four hours,

the world has lost.
