“We’ll make America great again”
so you spoke and set the tone,
while only stirring hate again.

With every bill that you amend
we face a new unknown
to “make America great” again.

We watch you stand there quite content
to deport and rezone,
while generating hate again.

How many folks can you offend
or use as stepping stones
still chanting “we’ll be great again?”

Just what is it you intend
with these seeds you’ve sown
that promote such hate again…

Surrounded by your kith and kin
you constantly bemoan
that you'll “make America Great” again
while only stirring hate again.

Day 21 NaPoWriMo to write about something we overheard. Yeah, sorry,  a bit of a political rant, just where the words went for the prompt.
