JanPoWriMo 6

The best a presidential historian 
Just could muster is

I don’t mean to leave everybody
Hanging but

We’ll just have to wait and see if
Our system holds

You and I have children and they
Are in danger tonight

The country the country is in danger
The newscaster

(In another building due to the ongoing
Emergency)

Explained while the historian nodded
And nodded putting

A period on this unprecedented day
That is still happening
