And now the time has come, he said,
to wisely wonder where we are.
When few have all, many beg for bread,
it appears we have gone far too far.

Does anyone now even remember
where we thought we were going?
Did we start this trip one December?
Icicles hanging, winter wind blowing.

The months seemed to barrel past
though the days dragged, deigned
to disappear, each second rooted fast.
Crazy fills our news; madness reigns.

Now, each side claims the other is nuts,.
reflecting what the shadow players think.
It’s all your fault, no ifs, ands or buts.
For blame, answer the riddle of the Sphinx.

I witness craven cowards cheat to win.
Stack the deck, a conman’s sleight of hand.
Make up stories full of other’s foul sin.
Create a cult that follows as their van.

Our brief governing experiment may fail.
Small potatoes when stacked against Earth.
Whether one side or the other should prevail,
it will leave little time for mass or mirth.

Our time is come and gone, our actions late,
we’ll decay with species long past merely dead.
With few, if any left behind to mourn our estate,
Now the time is come to change, he said.
