Inauguration 2017

"The nations rage," was said, while some rejoice.
Even within, double-side vibes arise,
parties on each side heed every voice.

What high goals aspired, honoring each choice,
with contest intense waged to gain the prize.
"The nations rage," was said, while some rejoice.

Near cheers of congratulations, angry noise,
glass breaks, burned car sends flames into the skies;
parties on each side heed every voice.

Does Lady Liberty stand high with awesome poise?
Passions discordant, protest and support comprise.
"The nations rage," was said, while some rejoice.

Children and grandchildren proud to see the choice,
peaceful, changed administration, wise,
Parties on each side heed every voice.

Inauguration launches what is new;
we pray the healing and the nation's rise.
As nations rage, inevitable, rejoice;
A Nation Under God; We'll heed His voice.
