It’s the eleventh hour but it’s not midnight.
We need not be reminded of what must be done
To preserve our democracy. We can’t do this
Unless we want to change and we cannot dismiss
Obvious misbehavior by people who run
Every aspect of government. We want what’s right.
It can’t be just waking up enough to elect
Somebody who is different for president.
That’s so small compared to everything that’s at stake.
We need to wake up and we need to stay awake
To the methods of those who have evil intent.
One who speaks from the heart is the one to select.
Americans can always be counted on to
Do the right thing after we’ve exhausted every
Other option. The whole world is rolling their eyes
About us now because if we meet our demise
Then the whole world will suffer. For much too long we
Have been dragging our feet knowing not what to do.
We will do what other generations have done
Before us. We have not been responsible, but
That was then and this is now. We’ve gotten here late,
But we’re here and we’ve got a crap ton our plate
To deal with. As we do so, be prepared for what
Victory really feels like. We’ve only begun.
