THEN THEY CRY
(11/10/16)

their candidate
has lost

they try
to wear
a smiling
mask

but soon
they break
down

how
could this
happen?

how
could the rest
of America
be
so ignorant?

the election
is so
unfair!

we wonder
about them

they appear
just a touch
overemotional

the Commander
In Chief
actually
does little
to affect
the machinery
of democracy

the cogs
of capitalism

only
the headlines
are damaged

the readers
destroyed

weep
if you must

the gargantuan
gears
of government
are rustproof

they
grind on
regardless
of your
tantrums

taking
your money
whether it be
blue

red

or soggy
