A Poem for Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration
Each day as we go about our business,
tweeting past our older tweets,
RTing some or not,
about to tweet or tweeting.
Each day we encounter each other in twitter,
words incoherent or ungrammatical,
incomplete or insulted,
words to consider, reconsider.
We know there’s something better down the road.
We gather our equality, pride, liberty and justice.
To walk into that which we cannot yet see.
To find a place which is safe for
Our intelligence, our rationality and sanity.
On the brink of twitter horizon, on the cusp of fake news explosion,
May we take that next step.
[Inspired by Elizabeth Alexander’s Praise Song for the Day]
