The Election 2016

Alex Stoner

The chaotic theory of this social referendum

Catching America by storm


The imploding emotion of citizens

Collapsing from the wonky ego of candidates

Suffocating those who watch


Smutty words ooze through young minds

People born in speechless poverty

Seen as a social oddity


A quenching thirst searching for peace

Instead we crumble into a tarnished burden


Lucid greed on our screens

Distasteful comments engraved in our minds


They’re sitting upon their fortuitous fortresses

Aggravating the nation below

Floundering words into those who don’t understand


How did America the Beautiful

Become a hollow oasis
