Can It Sink Any Lower Or Rise Any Higher

Can It Sink Any Lower or Rise Any Higher?

Can it sink any lower?
Just when you think that you have heard it all,
that the Elephant’s rhetoric has sunk to new depths,
or the right’s political process can get any more salacious,
Donald Trump tweets and Ted Cruz twitters.

Can it Rise any Higher?
Just when you think that hate and Isis are winning,
or question if the 60’s revolution will ever come to fruition,
or that peace will ever be a reality,
a bird lands on Sander’s podium and Rolling Stones rock Cuba.
