when nightmares become daydreams to bring smiles to faces
when shrouds spread out to wing our dreams to flight
and the blown brains of daring democrats
become the watermelon we wait to eat from the bloody ballot box
are these not the demonic dividends
that the gap-toothed is boldly bringing to us?
it was the freest and fairest we ever had
yet the waiting winner never saw the faces of freedom
…if only you could annul the past
to put the future behind bars,
would these shadows haunting your present not have stepped aside?
