The More Things Change the More They Remain the Same

Signs of the times — morning headlines:

President-elect’s choices for
cabinet positions are white,
Wall Street elites.

White police officer exonerated of
all charges in killing unarmed
black man, signaling again
defeat of the accrete.

Nothing is coming together;
it’s still all falling apart;
poor whites get betrayed
and blacks are told to depart.

It’s America’s creed —
fear, raw power and greed.
