Two More Years

two more years, 
I think,
until I won’t 
get offended
on Twitter

or into fights
with “friends”

until I can
turn on the news
and not want to cry
it’s safe to pick up
a newspaper
without worrying
I’ll rip it to shreds

two more years,
I think,
we can get
through this
the days are long
but the years are short

and maybe
they will be
even shorter

we can only

remember hope?
remember change?

who’s laughing now,
