A Voter’s Lament

time taken to understand
to do right by me
by my country
harken the prospects
in boisterous, flung hate
perpetuitas nonsensicality

then
then
in measure, in columns
in resolve
in firm trust
with leaden mark
all, most, some
to stations gather
then wait
wait for conclusions
wait for outcomes
wait in wonder
regime unvaried
regime change

then
then
we sixth of one
in concert
in unison
chagrin afresh, anew
peerless foreboding
dreading fate, fortune
of our fragile native land
asunder torn
oh the loss
oh the waste
of a solitary cast
into franchised waters
