When Nothing Lives Up To Our Expectations – A Poem

When Nothing Lives Up To Our Expectations
(Upon watching a presidential debate)

charlie-chaplin-392926_640I will look aside
slant my glance this way
and that
smile and nod
because
otherwise
well
let’s not dwell
on an otherwise
moment’s daydream
let’s just say
I will not incite
my violent emotions
even upon you
right now
at least.
