Inauguration Day

the
transition
of power
climbing
the tower
now is
the hour
of change

a
nation
divided
citizens
sided
with opposite
views they
arrange

cheering
and chanting
booing
and ranting
the glorious
debacle
begins

with hands
on the Bible
and eyes
on the rival
surrounded
by foes
and friends

one man
steps up
one man
stands down
one office
still remains

one nation
under God
justice
divided
as always

-H. Louis Jones Jr
