I dreamed of a rocky wilderness

Aren’t we all solicitous of America?
What surge of pride?
I dreamed of a rocky wilderness.

A Republican America,
and we all grew querulous,
yet purified in office, may you be,

with a briefcase full to
match that swagger, and stand tall,
America, diverse and all.

Prompt:

I woke up to watch the live streaming of Trump’s inauguration. I wish you well, America. What sort of values will you espouse? Write about it maybe. Oh the dignity of that office, and how Trump will carry it, the world watching in bated breath. Holding it holding it holding it.
