A Post-(U.S.) Election Poem

A poem I wrote some years ago — and I have to say as I share it, I'm not sure if the language of grace works for me any longer. Too old, tired, disheartened to be glib about using it now, I'm afraid.

The political life of this nation has broken my heart for the last few years now, and learning what I have had to learn about some relatives and some friends: rips the notion of grace entirely out of my heart. (Clicking the image will give you a larger picture of it.)
