Anonymous Poetic Opinion in circulation (Facebook)
Part of the misery of these four years is there is no art in this White House.
There is no literature or poetry in this White House.
No Kennedy Center award celebrations.
There are no pets in this White House. No loyal man’s best friend. No Socks Clinton, the family cat.
No kid’s science fairs.
No times when this president takes off his blue suit, red tie uniform and becomes human; except when he puts on his white shirt, khaki pants uniform and hides from Americans to play golf.
There are no images of the first family enjoying themselves together in a moment of relaxation.
No Obamas on the beach in Hawaii moments, or Bushes fishing in Kennebunkport, no Reagans on horseback, no Kennedys playing touch football on the Cape.
Where did that country go?
Where did all of the fun and joy and expressions of love and happiness go?
We used to be a country that did the ice bucket challenge and raised millions for charity.
We used to have a president that calmed and soothed the nation instead dividing it.
And a First Lady that planted a garden instead of ripping one out.
We are rudderless and joyless.
We have lost the cultural aspects of society that make America great.
We have lost our mojo. Our fun, our happiness. The cheering on of others.
The shared experiences of humanity that makes it all worth it.
The challenges AND the triumphs that we shared and celebrated.
The unique can-do spirit Americans have always been known for.
We are lost.
We have lost so much in so short a time.
Let’s see if we can get some of these things back starting when we vote on November 3rd.”
