Day 2 #OctPoWriMo2020 – Vulnerable

Day 2 is Vulnerable. Prompt words are: Vulnerability, Exposed, Open 

Suggested Form: Haiku , Lannet

I will try a Lannet. “The Lannet consists of 14 lines – presentation of such piece is to the poet’s preference. There is a strict syllable count of 10 per line. The Lannet has NO END-LINE RHYMING SCHEME. Only internal rhyme is allowed. There is no stipulance of Iambic form, pentameter or tetrameter for a Lannet.  The Lannet form was created by Laura Lamarca.”


Mister President is sick with COVID
Markets panicked, he was exposed

Right wing white supremacists are ready
Will he get well? Will he order them to fight

My BIPOC* friends are always in danger
I will help to defend and shelter them

I continue to speak out for BIPOC*  –
Lives in danger because they are not white

The President is an open racist
He despises skin with color, loves white

Our democracy is vulnerable
Vote him out, let us win decisivly


*BIPOC is now – BBIAPIPOC (black, brown, indigenous, asian pacific islander POC)

      1. And then what? Then the GOP May win and the policies or lack thereof stay the same. Yes. He brought it on himself. But the guys licking his boots are just as bad, just not as transparent or crass
