The Day the Music of Justice Died

Yes, Don McLean, you sang
that the music died
between 1957 and 1969,
but the music of justice
died Saturday, October 6, 2018
at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time,
on the floor of the US Senate
when old, white women and men
in a last gasp power grab
with their era to rule passing away
elected a severely flawed,
privileged white man on this dark day
to do their bidding
and to judge with unlimited
authority you and me
each and every day
and for years and years to come.
