Feeding Our Nightmares

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: November 16, 2019

The dangerous diet of late night news…

Impeachment talk. The White House race.
A Congressman resigns
acknowledging she made a big mistake.
So, too, McDonald's burger king
who caved to an affair
and left a fast-food frenzy in his wake.

The headlines of the late night news
are fodder for bad dreams.
Our nightmares eat their fill on what we see.
I guess it's little wonder why
we wake up feeling pooped.
We're tired of the way life seems to be.

Dear God, our nation's in a mess.
Divided we are doomed.
We've lost our bearings victimized by hate.
If left alone to go our way,
who knows where it will lead?
No candidate can make our nation great.
