Poetry Project 2017: 02/01

Headlines: Outrage continues over Trump’s executive order.  Vigils held in Canada for victims of terrorist attack on Mosque. Trump accuses China and Japan of currency manipulation. Japan still mad at South Korea over ‘Comfort Woman’ statue.

 

 

Turn the page, 
time's moving on.
One month of the year over and,
oh,
how things have changed.
oh,
how we have awoken.

You thought last year was bad?
Why?
Because your favorite artist died?
People die.
Individuals die.
Artists die.
Art lives on,
be grateful.

How do you like this year so far?
Another celebrity dead.
A fascist in power.
Another terrorist attack.
War without end.
History and debate still drag on.

Good morning, new year people,
it's time to get to work.
So wake-up from your stupor and,
fortify yourselves.
Let's do what needs to be done.
It's February already.
