Dust Devil 

Election 2016


An election 'like none other'

protracted and bitter

shines light onto the

dissension within our nation


Republicans withdraw support from

their presidential nominee

Democrats express concern

knowing theirs must win


Defamation of women

mockery of those with disabilities

racial and cultural slurs

spew daily from one candidate


The other prepares each day

for another onslaught of

bullying and allegations

Some true, some not


Discussions of issues lost

amidst rabid fear-mongering,

lies and accusations

Stress and disgust abound


With gross misrepresentations

given by candidates and media pundits

suspicion thrives where

trust once stood ...

—Gail Bornfield
