Keep Calm

You ask me to be calm.

How can I be,

Donald leads the world

And superficiality is the new normality.

 

You ask me to be calm.

How can I be,

The artic melts away

And the greens turn to dust.

 

You ask me to be calm.

How can I be,

The girl child is now a tool

And the boy child a loaded gun.

 

You ask me to be calm.

How can I be,

I see the end

And they see nothing.
