Fuck Trump

Kelsey Cooley

 

how dare you

how

fucking

dare

you

how dare you confess your love

how dare you say you care

who are we to open our arms

who are we to talk of equality

the ground you walk has frozen over

and you are the devil himself

my mama always said,

“the devil is dressed in gold”

how dare you talk of change

your world is sick and cold

how dare you look into my eyes

you are responsible

for the tears my loved ones cry

how dare you!

 

how dare you

talk of unity

while war slips

from your lips

how dare your heart freely beat

while mine shakes and stutters

in my anxious sleep

how

fucking

dare

you!

 

how dare you stand before me

without getting on your knees

how dare you even speak

it all sounds like jibberish to me

how could you

make my nation weep

while you rest easy

in your placid sleep

how

fucking

dare

you
