Hanging On A Thread And A Raindrop

Thanks to Marco Allegretti on Unsplash

Democracy hung on a loose thread tonight
At her limits, nearly frayed
Red in splotches, white undecideds, blue in veins,
Unraveling?? Some wept. Some prayed.

“He’s almost over the top”
I thought I heard a voice
Not about that guy who was always over the top
Once, no one’s, first choice
