Audacity To Dream, Again (March 24, 2017)

At last
An island of wisdom
In a sea of ignorance
Does cradle Washington DC
Today.

As the antithesis forces
Of a nurturing 
And caring nation
Bow their heads
In defeat.

In the withdraw
Of President Trump's
American Health Care Act
From the floor of Congress.

But
How long
Before insanity returns
To haunt us?

In 
A newer
And uglier form
Ever imagine.

For the price
To dream
Is eternal vigilance.

Knowing
Darker days
Are ahead.

Before 
We can awake
From this nightmare.

To begin
The healing.

Author's note: On Friday, March 24, 2017, Republican leaders pulled the bill from the House of Representatives, that would have repealed former president Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, replacing it with American Health Care Act. A bill, many critics have described, as harsh and unjust, in penalizing the poor, the young and elderly, with excessively high premiums, for these groups of people.
