#1- "Everyone's a Moderate Except When They're Not"

This is day one of a new project where I am posting a poem a day through President Donald Trump's first one hundred days in office as a way to examine how we reached this point. I know it we are three days in but this is where this project begins. If you want to follow me on social media check out my Twitter and Facebook and you can sign up to my mailing list at the bottom of this post. I hope you like the poem, if you do could you share it for me on your social media? It helps a lot!

Everyone's a moderate except when they're not

 

I don't think we go 

to the grave divided

or left or right or anything

but dead— just dead

spirited away somewhere

deep in the cosmos

 

news man says

watch out for the liberals

the conservatives all the

liberals being liberal all

the conservatives conserving

leftie commie socialist anarchist

feminist black lives matter thugs

right wing fascist hill billy

cousin fucking racist klans men

alt right neo nazi deplorables

 

but I've worked with liberals

who march the streets with

signs protesting for the unheard

after Sunday mass

 

and I've smoked joints

with old conservatives

from New York who 

voted Trump and have photos

of Giuliani on their desks

next to their Mexican wives

 

I've sat at the bar with republicans

and democrats and anarchists

who laughed at the same jokes

and cheered for the big blue

of the Monday night

foot ball game

the night was holy 

and wholesome

and we never talked politics 

only sank further 

into our stools

 

I wonder are there protests

outside of the gates of heaven

all them sinners who voted

wrong banging on the gates?

all them lefties all them righties

all them dead men have

to go somewhere 

and that somewhere

is probably all the same
