AugPoWriMo 17

It is what it is for what it is worth
Going high is the only thing that works
We have spent the summer talking at screens
With so much at stake tearing at the seams
Some of us know the story we must tell
To bring us all back from the brink of hell
These voices should stir us all to action
Not sit and wait for some other faction
If you’re still on the fence which side you’re on
I greet your indifference with a yawn
Wake up! History has its eyes on you
Even if it can’t tolerate the view
There’s only one shot at course correction
You damn well better vote this election
