Just Trying...To Figure….This Out Poem by James B. Earley

Just Trying...To Figure….This Out



Pondering...Trump's answer....to reporter's query
….We're all left….in emotional….doubt
President...having refused...to console our nation
...America's...trying to figure….this out

Everywhere...terror's...reflected in some mirror
….Wondering...what the future's...gonna be
Never offering a guiding word...seems maddeningly absurd
...On display...for all the world….to see

Without faith in the morrow...there's nothing to borrow
...A government….in oblivious….disarray
Leadership...given a chance….yet looking totally askance
….Literally...with only bullshit….to say
*
*
Our president….refusing...to console...the Nation
...Leaves...one and all….in critical...doubt
Pondering the question...considering his weird answer
….Just trying….to figure….this out
