your kingdom come 

On Thursday, on a bit of whim, I composed the following and posted it on my Facebook author page. It seems to be proving one of my more popular posts, so I thought I’d also share it here…


amid the clamour and the jeering
unabashed electioneering

vote swinging, mud-flinging
fake news, opposing views
idolising, demonising
the polls and the trolls

delighted support or sarcastic retort
dreams crumpled, voters disgruntled
the derided and the undecided…

baffling choices, hate-filled voices
feeling betrayed or falsely portrayed
motives mistaken… hope reawakened?

I cannot tell which way we’ll turn;
what lessons (if any) we will learn

all the rejection and potential dejection
of this general election…
a course correction?

the future uncertain, I close the curtain
at the end of the day and continue to pray…

your kingdom come

  1. Thank you for also posting it to the open internet where everyone can read it! I especially love the playing with words in the third section: support-retort; crumpled-disgruntled; derided-undecided.
