On Shaky Ground

How can there be
Justice without
Liberty without
Freedom and facts

Without evidence?
When lies become
Truth by a repeated
Mantra yelled from
The very rooftops;

We’ve gone too far.
The goal these days
Is to get what you
Want, to score no
Matter what, to win

At any cost even if
You’ve lost never
Admit it to anyone.
Do not concede nor
Stand down, hold your

Ground and claim fraud.
