You cannot win every time

By arming yourself
With draconian laws
And huge military weapons
You thought you could win …

Loud jingoism
Forced nationalism
Might have made you think
That there is no obstacle in your path…..

Covering carefully
Your failures
In the din of
‘Make America great again’
You think that your future is a cake walk …

But,

Black Lives Matter
Standing Rock Sioux
Transgender protests
Muslim minority struggles
Will haunt you
And warn you:
‘You cannot win every time’
