Continue the Monologue

They want us to forget
That through the entire election
No one mentioned climate change

Until Sandy hit
How it took cities being washed away
Millions losing electricity

Flooded tunnels and subways
Thousands becoming homeless
One hundred dead

Like a bullet in our collective head
They want us to talk about affairs
Who is sleeping with whom

Not about the war
Not about the oil we are fighting for
Not about the children we neglect

By allowing hunger
By allowing poverty
They want us to forget

The approaching fiscal cliff
A memo was surely sent
Dumb it down

Turn Generals into clowns
Direct the dialogue
Continue the monologue

About Benghazi
About the election
About voter suppression

So we won’t realize
The ocean’s rise
While clinging to our sinking pride
