THE WAR AT MY DOORSTEP
 
   the war at my doorstep

   the light on the hill

   makes me wonder wonder wonder

   season of the witch

   stretches into the night

   reports of partisan and venomous

   contentions reject offers of compromise

   makes me wander wander willfully wondering

   money and cannon fodder

   faster and further

   illegitimate emergencies

   that pork pork pork

   collateral damage and bull markets

   two income families and abandoned homes

   the war at my door

   the fire in the heart

   worry wonder and wander
