Tick Tick

a nation at war with itself,
pain inflicted both left and right,
problems never addressed,
crises continue to build,
pressure cookers,
made into bombs by the politically inept,
the philosophy of government unravels,
wait for the polling data,
build a consensus,
and let the people decide,
gridlock prevails,
as citizens arm themselves in the streets,
awaiting Armageddon.

editors note:

When the people decide there is enough (of them, at least), perhaps Armageddon will never be more than a bad movie from 1998. – mh
