It Cracked

it cracked
like an old bell
statutes of liberty
when, from Command’s seat, pronounced
judgments on where a brother takes a knee
while islands flood in the darkness
and neighbors shift rubble
the king’s worn crown
it cracked

  1. Excellent post, Tanya! To those who supported him you got just what you wanted for America – chaos, divisiveness and the spread of hatred. It’s ironic that some NFL owners contributed ($7 + million) to his coronation ceremony only to be betrayed. Typical of him. No surprises there.
    Sorry for getting off track – not something I often do… squirrel!!! lol
    Have a beautiful day my friend! ^.^

    1. Thank you so much! No one should be surprised at his antics. He is repeating the same rhetoric he spewed out during the election. With all the damage in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and Mexico, how about encouraging people to make donations and help. That would be leadership.
      Have a wonderful day, yourself!😊
