Blue Skies Ahead

In just two weeks

On November third

America’s winds will shift

The gray turns to blue

In the sky’s vivid hue

The sun will shine

For the first time again

In four years

My angry growl will be tamed

My nasty scowl it will devour

And alleviate

My hopelessness

And my anxieties

    As the Allman Brothers sang, “You’re my blue sky, you’re my sunny day, Lord, you know it makes me high when you vote my way”.

      There was an interview I saw on TV today where a reporter talked to members of a far-right militia (terrorist) group who said that the only way that Trump could lose would be if the election was rigged or through fraud, and, so, if Trump didn’t win, the election would be illegitimate and he and his militia brothers would take up arms to defend the “rightful winner” (i.e., Trump).

        Scary isn’t it? This whole past four years is like a nightmare. Freedom of expression is not being able to threaten and intimidate with deadly force. We’ve seen too much of that for a lot of years, but since Trump has been in office it has increased. He’s getting desperate now and I’m sure he and his minions have more crap planned.

    I really hope you’re right, but I still have a bad feeling about this…

      I was trying to be optimistic, but deep down inside, I, too, have a bad feeling.

    With all the high numbers of absentee ballots how long do you think it will be before there is a winner declared?
