Autumn’s frost deepening the crimson of maple leaves, yet
of the poet’s heart,
are we only placed here to renew, clearly
we have a voice
as with summer crickets singing
their sweet songs,
yet locusts clattering of who knows what, droning
until summer’s ear no longer listens.
So instead of singing sweetly or droning endlessly
I write simply,
will we survive until next autumn?
I wonder, and an equation is formed like this:
CONSPIRACY THEORIES = HATE = VIOLENCE AND CRUELTY = FACISM =
Think it can’t happen in the United States? It already has.
Just ask Paul Pelosi.

P.S. Almost all political hate is from the right. The “both sides” theory is from the right wing attempting to defuse their blame. More than 90% is from Republicans, according to Liz Cheney.
