The damage

Whispers of normal thinking are in the air,
Signaling an end to a four-year nightmare
But we're kidding ourselves if we think he'll fade,
The best way to deal with rabid is to have him spayed
But it's too late, the damage is long-term and here,
His virus has spread, too many are ruled by fear
Sunday's starter will become a scrub with a mike,
Launched too many missiles, many holes in the dyke
The echoes of an idiot will ring o'er the age,
Too many out there who're on a different page.
Or sadly, don't think for themselves or read at all
The American Roman Empire is headed for a fall
Unless we collectively wake up from the trance
It represents our last, best, and only chance

No one, not even "him" can extinguish hope. Good poem Mike.

You put this very well, Mike. The penultimate stanza is painfully true. Too many people opt for amusing themselves to death, whereas they could become involved in how their country is run.
