On Hiatus

I cannot share in your debates
the never-ending brouhaha;
combating anger and such hate
just leaves me feeling frayed and fraught.
It’s not that I have blinders on
am ignorant, without a clue,
the lies keep changing every day
out on display for our review.
My focus has turned singular
as if,  perhaps, by will alone—
I could fend away the fear
against this dark and great unknown.

So should you wonder where I am?
I’m right here where I need to be
battling unbending foe
never ceding to defeat.

And when this campaign’s finally done,
when I’ve done all I can do,
and when I’m sure that we have won
that’s when I’ll return to you.
