TODAY’S TANKA – 08152017



This is a disgrace!

America’s in crisis

Still fighting racists-

Still fighting home-grown racists

Pretending that they’re strangers.


These are terrorists

Trumps executive orders

Didn’t account for

Because they are not Muslims,

And they’re white Americans.


In this dry season

Of struggle and discontent.

All good people, RISE!

To vanquish dragons like this,

All the good people must, RISE!
