Not My Beast To Claim

as Trump and the like celebrate

and lie, with smiles on their faces,

on their white, blood-stained sheets

i hope they know they cannot get rid of us

they cannot get rid of us

and i instead think about

my family

my fear

and all those who too are in fear

all of their families

all of their hearts

all of our hearts

so heavy, our hearts

he is not my president

he is not my president

he is not my president

this will not be his revolution
