An Election Misread

a year later,
the election of Donald Trump,
still not understood by the ruling elite,
Donald Trump,
a living, breathing bomb,
thrown by the people of America,
at their government,
we want and expect structural damage to be done,
the parties and ruling classes have nothing to offer,
let them become casualities,
the war of ideology,
now an armed conflict,
while morons argue about Russia,
the ignorance of history,
elections are events,
begging to be influenced,
in 2012 the IRS did its part for the party in power,
the ignorant, naive illusion,
elections never influenced,
and virgin pure,
a mistake causing this election to be misread,
we the people are on the verge of revolt,
Trump was only the first grenade lobbed.
