Darkness Spreading

by jake cosmos aller

There is a darkness

In the world

That has come back

From a dark period

In world history.

When fascism

Took hold in Germany

Italy, Spain and elsewhere,

A darkness of the soul

Fascism has come back

With the trump MAGA movement.

And similar rise

Of the right wing

In Europe and other places.

The classic elements

An appeal to power

To tradition

To a strong man.

Who will come in

And save the country

Taking the country back.

For the real Americans

Battling the vermin

foreign invaders

Infesting the county.

The darkness is spreading

A dark, dangerous, devious mood

Spreading across the land

Darkness, despair, fear

Hatred of the other.

dark muttering

of civil war 2.0

of internment camps

for immigrants

and other undesirables

Will the power of the light

Overcome the power of the dark.

Will democracy overcome

This dark moment.
