Another night finds me

In morning's tiny hours

Coffee waiting, waking to see

What has befallen what we thought ours

I watch and wait those tiny hours the next assault to see

On what was once free

Our lives, for instance, target of attacks by would be tyrants

Our lives lived for our kids, our families, our community

We once acted for ourselves and others in a constant effort to balance

Now we must act to protect what is no longer sure , certainly

Freedom has never been without cost

Always a struggle in the open or in the dark watching the wolves,
now he

In whose madness of evil would be boss

In whose narcissism and insanity is only meanness and chaos

Watching no longer enough , waiting democracy

Calls us again to the bastions of truth and liberty

Watching others fight for me ?

No more

We cannot protect what we can't fight for.
