Poetry Project 2017: 02/06

Headlines:  Israel welcomes Trump’s Iran sanctions. Families split apart by travel ban. Canada courting US tech experts.

Facebook fever,
symptoms like PTSD,
interesting times we live in,
you and me.

All day long: bad news,
every damn day.
Can't look at it,
but can't look away.

Burn, burn, yeah it's gonna burn!
That old enemy-intent.
But now, oh God!
It's coming from your own government!

Complacent too long,
freedom taken for granted.
You let your guard down
and did exactly what they wanted.

Don't despair much 
at the ball of human history.
Humans keep it rolling,
with the constant infliction of misery.
