Fighting Zombies Would Be Easier

The Republican attempt to attack health care
was stopped YET AGAIN.
So Trump will sabotage it in other ways,
as the GOP moves on to tax breaks for the rich.

The devastation in Puerto Rico is heartbreaking,
an acute humanitarian crisis,
heightened by an insufficient response from D.C.
all worsened by an underlying economic crisis
created by vulture capitalists who keep circling.

Russian continues to interfere in our politics,
Facebook continues to fall short in its policies,
and the Trump team continues to try
to obstruct the Mueller investigation.

From terrible bills that will not die,
to long crises that won’t be addressed,
to bad behavior that goes unchecked,
it’s like we’re confronting zombie politics,
a persistent assault from an undead army.

At least zombies just want your brains.
These guys want our brains, our healthcare,
our money, and the soul of our democracy.

Maybe fighting zombies would be easier.

For now, toast another defeat of Trumpcare,
and raise your spirits for the many fights ahead
at your local, progressive social club.
