Cannot Support His Supporters
A comment, just one line
to reveal a hush-hush held for some time,
in support of a previous regime
condemnation of our new leader’s first weeks,
she was always one of them, not what she seemed.
Well, burning bridges is not the finest way
although let me just say,
I have a desire to knock down every
pedestal that held that man in esteem,
every frail column that bolstered his steam.
She was supporting right under my nose
a despot who would strip me of my rights
my dignity, my life,
and I don’t want to say, but maybe it’s just,
a comment can make a friend former these days.
