Post Bern Silence

i ran headfirst into the fray
not since Dennis Kucinich
had i heard anything presidentially
political to believe in

now in another aftermath the temptation
is for bitter depression to see
the world ruled by the few
i am a protest poet to the core

i will not be silent or stand down
but neither will i stand and rant
or take a side like power over does
i’m a world citizen no a particular patriot

lived too long in too many places to be
a blind follower my voice has not yet
changed the world and still i point a lot
and cry out for justice do not hold my tongue

a foolish act this closing of the mouth and word
and yet sometimes silence is so much more powerful
than words and so i end this discourse in
