Oh say can you see

years from now our grandchildren will wonder what we were up to
of course only a few will be able to read or write
under the reign of Trump books will be burned as alternative fuel

forget the great deeds of America's past
usury will be the new bible
cocaine the new currency
know that the world is watching 
in rivulets of terror
no place on earth will be safe from the new god

did we take our eye off the ball, damned right
is the immediate future as uncertain as it has ever been
can we turn back from this festering future
Krakatoa had nothing on the black ash from this orange burn
we should have known
all the cards were on the table
dimwitted us, playing cards in the next room
