Décima Challenge 39 Poets Collected

12 Poets from last week’s challenge of CONTRAST and their Décimas. All links open in a new window when clicked on.

Please be sure to visit everyone at least once if you haven’t already. More variety than I thought would happen this week with the prompt word being Gift.

Yes, The Poem is Called January 6th, 2021

Here we sit, a ruling at last,
An electoral finale day.
There are no more dragons to slay.
He is now a voice from the past.

Still, he will scream, rant and contrast
his fantasy with all that’s real,
chant he won, cry “the big steal”
berate, bamboozle, and bellow,
blame the stars, the other fellow,
as we await Biden’s New Deal.

Part 2: Yes, The Poem is Called January 6th, 2021 Later in the Day

In seconds, chaos moves in fast,
a fevered Trump-fuelled riot,
Democracy, once sound, quiet,
and this disgrace, such a contrast.

Trump is an actor so miscast,
a grim presidential eyesore
at best, at worst a rotting core,
a gash on America’s heart.
We watch civility depart
and inch closer to civil war.
