“You cannot eat a cluster of grapes at once,

but it is very easy if you eat them one by one.”

I Do Not Like The Men You Are 
_______________________________________________
I do not like the men you are
Your work on healthcare is quite sub par
With years to think how to make it right
You toss us a plan of national fright
With millions about to lose any care
While tax cuts for the rich is what you cheer
By the actions you take you shall be known
From Atlantic waters to Pacific foam
In history books you’ll one day be shamed
For the millions who will perish by this act in your name

Roz Levine is a Los Angeles poet. The results of the last election has rekindled her political activism both in the words and peaceful actions of her life. She cannot accept the abnormal as the new normal, sit back and do nothing as draconian changes shift our country to a nation becoming unrecognizable to millions of us.
