I’ve Been Thinking

I’ve been thinking dangerous thoughts, like how will I handle living under a trump

regime, and how will I explain to my granddaughters that a man who publicly bragged

about sexually assaulting women was elected to the highest office in this great land?

I’ve been thinking about one person, one vote, and how the electoral college system

resulted in the unthinkable: a grossly unqualified reality television star as commander

in chief, all because a good many Americans chose to believe rumors about a woman,

while denying deplorable truths about a man. The patriarchy is alive and well here in River City.

I’ve been thinking that this country’s future rests now precariously in unstable hands,

Somewhere between the devil and the deep red sea. If this were a movie, our noble 

knight would arrive on a charging steed, blades flashing, intent on saving us from ourselves.

He’d best hurry. I’m losing heart, and this is no movie. But, still, I’ve been thinking.

  1. Hollywood and Broadway Musical references in this thread in reference to our new lowering the bar star…Mr. Donald Trump. Apropos…as an interdisciplinary approach to understanding his most unlikely and unseemly star turn. And given that, I have been bending ears as to just how The Great White Way would score their homeboy’s rapid political rise. Just what would Donald’s “I Want Song” suggest. Yes, that “I Want Song” is a real broadway thing. From From Eliza Doolittle’s “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly” to Rose’s “Some People.”
