Election Series: "The Morning After" by Ani Keaten

The Morning After

By Ani Keaten

Men who hate women:
Your father, uncle, classmate.
Rapists, aka president-elects.
All I wanted was a female
President of the United States.
Is that so much to ask?
Social media is blowing up.
The way they talked about this
Vote was like Nazi rhetoric, an
Organized attack on “other.”
Two sides of America.
Even Germany warned us.
Did we listen though?
Fuck no.
Or maybe we did, and some
Really liked what they heard:
To be in power again.
Racist and no one to stop them.
Uncontrollable power, complete
Manipulation of the trinity:
President, Senate, and House.
