I’m Tired

I'm tired.
Aren't you tired?
Do you feel the weight of today
under the weight of tomorrow?
America wakes up tired.
We're exhausted from
the political divide
Covid-19 or Delta
or Omicron
or whatever variant is currently
chasing us in the streets
at our jobs
and down the aisles.
'The greatest country in the world'
they say.
But don't look while
voting rights and
democracy
are stripped for parts.
Watch the privately owned
rockets touch the sky
from  your phones
before falling asleep
to dream the Big Lie
of what's possible
in the greatest country in the world.
