KIND GESTURES 4. (USA)
I’ve been seeing what people say
in and around the USA,
and thought I ought to write a rhyme
to capture these concepts in time.
There seems to be a precedent
being set by this new president,
aimed at reversing all the hate
that has swept their fair land of late.
This president has told us all
he doesn’t want to build a wall,
or let more people die in vain
because of a new virus strain.
He would like to see the Earth
stand some chance at a rebirth,
if only we can stop the rot
of the pollution that we’ve got.
Joe B. would like people to know,
there is a different way to go,
away from lies and rhetoric,
towards something more democratic.
He wants his country to reflect,
both human rights and deep respect.
Thus, he would like his polity
to strive towards equality.
It seems to me, that what we see
within this land that they call ‘free’,
is a dawning of enlightenment
proposed by this new government.
Compassion seems to fill the air,
kind gestures appear everywhere,
and I, for one, hope this can last,
with no returning to the past.
