Trump Funk Blues


Election done
Chaos won
Reality dawns
Fantasy gone
Awe erased
Shock in place

Funk—Funk—Trump Funk

Nation united
Stands divided
Half elated
Half deflated
Emotion run rife
World pays the price
Facing our sentence
Four years penance

Funk—Funk—Trump Funk

Donald throned
Democrats moan
Rhetoric vile
Now fake smiles
Hillary concedes
Platitudes weaves
Obama genteel
Ire concealed

Funk—Funk—Trump Funk

Enough reeling
Time for healing

Through foul weather
Come together

End derision
Find clear vision

Create a new day
The American way

Ball in Trump’s court
Time clock starts


Remember our veterans today and thank them for their service!

9/11 + Fifteen


You can run but you can’t hide
With terrorist threats far and wide

A night on the town, a trip to the mall
Who knows the next victims tragedy befalls

Fear is festering away inside
Slowly eating our souls alive

With each attack humanity dims
Creating for youth a future grim

How much more blood must be shed
Before we purge the streets of red?

The time has come to heed the call
Across all nations large and small

To come together at last as one
Proclaiming no more violence be done

Within lies love of such great power
All evil it can compel to cower

But as for now we’re along for the ride

For you can run but you can’t hide
From hearts wherein hate still resides
