“A Tanka Trio (4)”

(#10)

Ersatz patriots
Gabble lustily amid
Smoke and blood and screams
Mindless primal mob worships
Q-birthed abomination

…..

(#11)

What have we become
Sun sets on all we have known
Cultists rend and tear
The soul of democracy
Freedom’s heart weeps in darkness

…..

(#12)

We cannot survive
The lies of those who seek to
Silence our voices
We will not survive if we
Cower silently in fear
