Favorite Quote:
I'm a lover, not a fighter, but I'll fight for what I love.

He’s the president above us
Capricious in nature
Toying with our patience he waits
As we stir anxiously

He holds the green light that nurses
Growth that now reverses
Among the foul, grunted curses
Reflecting frustration

Whimsical as he is, the when
Is as lengthy as sin
The intersection deadlocked then
And now rising violence

There were always some contesters
But never protestors
The light must switch investors
Or crash chrome and leather

The author's comments:
This poem is a conceit (my first) comparing today's current events with powerful people and the complete collapse of an everyday scene with civilians. I was prompted to express my thoughts from hearing too much about it on the news.
