With Sorrow We Dissent

A country that fails its people
A court with no black robes – only red and blue ones
A tale of Handmaids
Less rights than that of a rotting corpse
Or a gun

A clock setback 50 years
A leap along the road to theocracy
Never about life
Only ever about control
And division

Humans control their own reproduction
Woman are not livestock
Or incubators
A place as second class citizens is not an aspiration
No blame for crawling into bed to forget about this day

However empathy, responsibility, and strength
I see every woman taking the knee during the national anthem
A nation that targets its citizenry does not deserve to be worshiped
The snowflakes warn that winter is coming
With sorrow we dissent.
