On A River 

11/14/2016

On a river:

your raft has capsized 

and you are at the mercy 

of the currents;

while some

who were floundering

in the water 

have grabbed onto it

Soon again it will be reversed, 

those in the water back on the raft, 

those on the raft back in the water. 

Seems such reversals 

happen in some multiple

of every four years. 

Is there another way, 

besides this fight 

for flimsy security 

at the expense of others, 

where we find our way 

together? 

Better hurry to figure it out 

because, look, the river, 

it’s about to go over

a rushing waterfall

into the abyss! 

Won’t matter then 

who’s on the raft

and who’s not.
