Political Fracture

They cheered, clapped their hands,

Passed out the libations.

Years of setbacks overcome, meant

Cause for celebration.

Across the way, a happy stage was set,

With cameras and orations.

They’d hunkered down, fiercely focused

Ignoring accusations

Of greed, pride, impropriety

sustained stagnation.

With these steps, they’d dreamed

Of a reinvented nation,

Instead they widened the cracks

Of the entire foundation.
