One little step in the wrong direction.
Texas, you are breaking my heart.💔
And so begins the insurmountable resurrection
Of an antiquated law not meant to be broken.
Who could have seen that coming?
We were focused on our southern border
And our troops evacuating—following an order
That was a grievous crime against humanity
One we'll agree to disagree
A leader showing a timidity
One might call rigidity.
Not willing to roll with the tide
Change the order, save the allies
Throwing the G-7 under the bus
Leaving behind terror and mistrust.
Not taking any responsibility
For actions that didn't have to be
Devastating to the democracy
That was twenty years coming.
Who will be our friends now?
With friends like us, who needs enemies?
Back to Texas…
What a waste of time
To focus on the decline
of the woman's right to choose
When there are people dying
Across an expansive sea.
9/11 is nearing.
Can you see...
why my heart is broken?💔
