Poetry on the Morning After Nov. 8. 2016
I see the best in Americans. They are not stupid to the core - we all can be thoughtless at times - illogical, self deceived, not always, not all - We, this people, did not vote in majority for a man who fondles unwilling women. We voted for the woman. I feel robbed in a dark alley. This is not democracy. The day after, we are told it was unemployed, aging, white men and their women. They, so many of them, want vengence on a world that is taking their jobs, they have no worth without someone else saying so. What if we didn't choose wrong? In Pennsylvania, votes give no trace. Easy to introduce a bad seed between the code for the changing names of candidates, sent out on jump drives across the state. Who bought the hacks that rain down plausable results that pundits could explain?
