White House Down

White House Down

A Poem by The Iron Horseman
"

A supportive message to our American cousins in these troubled times.

"


How did it come to this?

A nation humbled and in distress.

A leader proven worthless,

No apparent form of redress.


A bigot building a wall,

To keep the less fortunate out.

Spending billions of dollars,

With his military-industrialist louts.


A liar whose story changes,

Each time it is proven false.

A bully whose blustering rhetoric,

Provides the tune for his last waltz.


The world can do little to help you,

This disaster is of your own making.

You must find the solution yourselves,

Although the path may be heartbreaking.


Just know that we wish you well,

We will be here when you need us.

You cannot choose your family,

But you can certainly choose your leaders.

Thank you for this. The 65% that are appalled by current times here in the USA have faith that our various friends around the world will understand that this administration DOES NOT REPRESENT US! (I often call him "The Chump - NOT MY PRESIDENT!") So thank you for showing us that you realize most of us are under extreme duress. Please let this end before 2020 . . . *sigh!* Your understanding of the situation is well-expressed with a balanced outlook (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie

This poem is beautifully worded, but I feel the meaning and opinion behind it were a wee bit misinformed. The balance of fact and opinion is a little off for me, but I loved it anyway!
