Here in America
Democracy is in crisis—
the economy booming.
Those in power willingly trade
catastrophic species extinction,
befouled water, poisoned air,
for immediate profit.
Neo-fascist, dystopic America
drains the public treasury,
encourages violent intolerance,
control over women’s bodies.
It’s stupid Watergate, the end of days.
More of us feel disenfranchised, ignored.
Drug use and suicides multiply.
Rule of law has been declared obsolete.
