I have no words


I’m spent, exhausted

Merely from

A viewing 

On my screen

A coup

Attempted for 

The world

To see

Can’t unsee

But sometimes

It would help

To ease 

The Heart

To ease the


To ease the


Simply forget

The alternate


Of reality

Of some

To believe

The unbelievable

It’s unbelievable

The obscene

The belief

Of many.
