JuneHaikuWriMo 14

We have come so far
only to turn this corner
back where we started

nothing set to change
to improve society
except photo ops

and smiling faces
hidden under masks so that
you can’t see the sighs

On this year’s Flag Day
(It was Flag Day? What is that?)
some are just flagging

others are ready
for the change we know must come
if we all wake up
