Broken Peace

everything was working fine
improving even
more individuals with insurance
than ever before
violent crime at historic
all-time lows
women, people of color
homosexuals and the transgendered
enjoyed rights decades earlier
they could only have dreamt of
but Republicans
they saw all this as broken
and when they rose to stolen power
they endeavored to fix
all these good, working things
and in doing so
they broke all of these
good, working things
irreparably
because for them
peace is a shattered dinner plate
and war is the way
to piece it all back together
