the people’s land, again

Glancing at the headlines
this AM I see
the Dems have at least
taken a few seats back,
maybe enough to give
them a majority vote
in the house.

I sang
“This Land Is Your Land”
to myself as
I rode my bike
downtown — I got
choked up
and started to cry.

Maybe it will be
the people’s land again,
someday.
