Interesting Times

Look
a darkness on the horizon
perhaps a storm coming our way
can you see it

It doesn’t take much to spark a fire now
start a conflagration
burn our homes
change our lives

A lightning strike
a careless match
a hot wind blowing from the east
it is a dangerous time

Listen
a rumble in the distance
can you hear it
a thousand jackboots marked                                             “Made in America”
marching

Louder
darker
closer
start a conflagration
burn our homes
change our lives

A storm coming our way
listen to the roar
the earth trembles
