It is still two minutes to midnight

there’s riots here, fires there
protests in the east, suppression in the west
annexation in the north, secession in the south,

pointing fingers, sure that if they ruled,
if they had the power, if they had the keys
the right seat at the high table,

there will be enough – no, more than enough
this time, they say, the earth will sprout green
& the sky will bring rain in due season,

it is still two minutes to midnight.
