two sides to every winner…and loser

It’s a new day          so it begins
a great victory          the unraveling,
for the forgotten          rejection of
rust belt
          ideals of justice and freedom by those
patriots          who fear assimilation,
who look back          who build walls
obsessed          against those who are other
with a time when          those who are different
everyone knew their place,          as protective measures
when no one challenged          stoked by fear
the status quo          established by the powerful elite
