Easy As Dawn

Just before sunrise under the vast skies
knocking on the stanchion holding the why’s
it’s cool for dawn in late July and hushed
the opening behind cloud cover’s blushed

an excited child bursting into view
bright powerfully shifting to brand-new.
Archons have taken over leaders’ brains–
they hiss and mumble unblinking remains

of alien intelligence unloosed
misguided missiles with nothing to lose
such greedy immorality, in chains
they seek to enslave chanting myth refrains

layered from childhood, entangled in tales
woven into societal travails.
Defenestrate the politicians fast
their pledges are to evil unsurpassed

and yet the truth is light; lies heavyweight
a simple conscious breath can dissipate.
Under the sun, unplugged, they hold no sway.
Right here, right now, we dance a new gateway.

Inspired by: Stanchion, Vast, Knocking and Defenestrate.

And inspired by Joe Biden’s recent tweet of himself unblinking for 30 seconds of reptilian ire and Nancy Pelosi sputtering and spluttering about bird and privilege scrub.
