Sweep Away Darkness

People Over Politics, Country Over Capitulation, World Over Wealth!

Peeking Through Time and Space ~ Philip Brent Harris


Am I having a nightmare or living in one?
Can’t escape, whether under moon or sun.
It’s when my eyes are open, when closed.
Feels like I’m in a race riot, just got hosed.
Most people that I see are wearing masks.
Those without scare me more, on my tasks.
It must be a dream; we’re led by a baboon.
He is far too dangerous to label a buffoon.
I’m hoping that in a fortnight he’ll be gone.
I’m tired of feeling I’m somebody’s pawn.
If this is truly a nightmare, the in-between,
Two months of murder and mayhem seen.
White supremacists will claim it is a duty.
Automatic weapons, flags waving you see,
When the star and bars, swastikas compete
I’m afraid we will see blood in our streets.
Mayhap, after, we will see the light again,
Sweep away darkness let new days begin.
