By the Dawn’s Early Light | by Mare Leonard

Trump is our president The People who voted for him?
Trump is endorsed by the Klan

All pundits say his Cabinet will be crazy like the Joker in Batman, Looney Tunes in DC ?   AndTherocketsredglare

“Great, it is, Great it is — challenge me, This is Mine.
Le pen is in, Putin too and Taiwan. Should I go on?”

Trump loves this America of the White and youknowwho
Forget the red and the blue and the black, the downtrodden

Dawn is here, Yellow stars are sewn to our sleeves:
LGBT and People of Color, the Hispanics, Muslims and Jews

Children too small to understand — protest for them.
Bombs of discontent burst in the air. Whose land?

Millions said yes to Trumpland but we are two million more
Dance in the streets Chant and sing on January 18th

OhSayDoesthatStarSpangledBanner yetWave?
