Primary fears

A thousand miles away,
Beyond my reach,
In a system I do not
Trust or understand,
Twisted arguments,
False evidence,
Hyped presentation,
Double standards,
Cloaked prejudice,
Personal vitriol,
Distorted images
And outright lies
Are wrapped in layers
Of endless spin
And force-fed to
A divided nation
Powered by the money
Of selfish patronage.
All this is shaping a choice
I cannot influence
That will affect my life
And billions more.
Vote wisely, America…
I am scared
