Election Tension

128 to 97. Refresh.
128 to 97.

My index finger nervously tapping
In double time to Trumps Electoral Tempo.
“236 Votes Per Minute! Only 34 more,”
I frighten myself with convoluted hysteria,
“He’s got it!”
And my heart sinks to the floor.

128 to 97. Refresh.
Trump bumps up to 140.

I wonder if the rumbling groan
resounding in the pit of my stomach
Might turn into another Oklahoma earthquake
As it rises the Richter Scale
In tandem with the Trumpocalypse.
