crumpled newspapers illuminated by a storm
ink slightly smudged by a tear
Lately the politics
bring tidal waves of fear

The men on TV,
what will they say today?
Insults roll off their tongue as
they take our rights away.

Rain beats down on the
window pane, relentless abuse
a meaningless, dull, pitter patter.
Mirroring politicians on the news.
