Phosphorescent - This Land Is Your Land - 2017

Somebody out there on the internet had made a collage of footage 
Of thousands of folks singing this song together at Bernie Sanders rallies 
Voices raised together in a spirit of generosity; 
Then juxtaposed it with footage from Trump rallies from that time 
People punching, spitting, yelling 
So much hate and anger 
So much ugliness; 
Everyone at ease with the empty mean-ness of it all; 
Everyone agreeing on impotent vile-ness 
As basic human-ness
