When the Title is Longer Than the Poem

COVIRUS FIGURES, MASSIVE FIRES, HURRICANES, TORNADOS, FLOODS, GUTTING OF THE U.S. MAIL, RIOTING IN THE STREETS, RACIAL INJUSTICE, POLICE BRUTALITY, HEALTH DEFUNDING, JOB LOSS, INCARCERATION OF CHILDREN, MASSIVE FRAUD, PARDONING OF CRIMINALS, GLOBAL WARMING, WITHDRAWAL FROM THE WORLD COMMUNITY, HYPOCRISY, SOCIAL DISTANCING, PANDEMONIUM!!!

There might have been a different outcome if a clown had not been ruling—
If the ones making decisions had listened to their schooling.
If so many others had not chosen to go rogue.
If the heresy of empathy had not been out of vogue.

If so many teeming masses had not chosen to go blind,
perhaps we would not be in such a tumultuous bind.
How to find a way out of our massive sinking boat?
No matter what new walls he builds, get out there and vote!!!!

 

Prompt words for today are clown, heresy, empathy, different and outcome.

    Please don’t take this as pointing out an error in in the title of your poem, it is not yours, it is the fault of the Democrats… Or is it~?. This is worth reading about a word we just do not see anywhere, but we should. Worth reading~!

      A very good point. Another one is this: A week after President Trump suggested that voters in North Carolina should cast two ballots — one by mail and another at the polls — the authorities in Georgia are threatening criminal action against 1,000 Georgia voters who did just that. If they prosecute the voters, they should also prosecute the man who suggested they do so. Just so much malfeasance in this administration that issues get lost in the shuffle.

      Yes..I was curious when she wrote that and went back and counted eight poems where that exact thing has been my main theme–that nature has ways of dealing with her parts that pose a threat to her.
