Statue of Liberty -
the poor, the tired
after their long journey
to the portals of freedom on earth.
March on the streets -
airing out voices of protest
to be counted in history
to uphold and protect innate freedom
of everyone, and not only for Americans.
Social media -
denounced as Fake News
but continues to persist and insist
Its role to give a glimpse of truth
and not an alternative truth.
Satire and comedies -
bring us back to life,
to laugh and giggle at what is bizarre
and idiotic in humans, even among
the powerful; keeping us laughing
to ease the atmosphere of uncertainty and fear.
