Laugh, or: Cry

The U.S. President provoked actual riot. 🤦‍♂️
Ev'ry grievance he claimed, they would buy it.
Hordes stormed the halls of Congress,
Hell-bent on making a mess...
Well, I s'pose no one thought he'd go quiet!

  1. Sorry I missed this post earlier, David. I found reading your post and the comments interesting. The incident was very distressing and waiting for the inauguration is stressful. I have gotten far behind on my emails. Glad I didn’t miss this one!

    1. 😀

      I really didn’t want to write more about the incident than this – so much has been and will be written about it. I’m somewhat sick of it already. But on the other hand, I just couldn’t let it go by without noting it on my blog somehow!


  2. Well expressed, but it should also serve as a revelation! They succeeded to breach the capitol, because they were WHITE! A racist country will always be opened to be fooled! Trump character was obvious and he just like the rioters were free to act in hatred, rage and against the constitution! When someone tell who they are, believe them! Great poem and point made.

  3. As a New Yorker, I knew what and who Trump was. So I am not shocked at all. I am only aghast at his followers and enablers who seem to have succumbed to a mass insanity. This is most decidedly not just “a difference of opinion” as one Republican Congressman said in justificationof his actions.(K)

  4. Strange and worrying times indeed! Today I read a report in a big UK newspaper from someone who left the UK some years ago and they were complaining about returning to the UK because of the way the UK Prime Minister has treated the British public regarding leaving the EU and so now they were afraid to return to the UK! Strange and worrying perceptions all round!

      1. David, I should have said that the person in the article I read had been living in the USA for many years and was now fearful of returning to the UK!!!! Is that called ‘irony’? Also, you in Israel having 4 rounds of elections in 2 years is just crazy! Change is happening just too quickly! 🙏

        1. yes, it is, and in our case – it’s because the country is divided over whether Prime Minister Netanyahu should stay in office or not – he’s been unable to form a stable coalition for two years now, and we keep on having to return to the ballot box.
