What should we do?
What is the poetry to save democracy?
What is the song to shield our soul
from the lies, the idiocy, the meanness?
What is the way forward?
What can we write that would help?
How can we strike the frequency that would build,
that would shake the foolishness apart,
splitting the lie in two, revealing it
as a shambles in the rubble?
Is there anything we can do?
A light touch?
A footnoted compendium?
A play to awaken the voices
within and between us all?
Begin with soap?
