The Gemini Factor
Are the Gemini twins to squabble again,
Will America be divided?
Can Trump trump up a few bad men
To help lead the misguided?
Brother against brother citizen,
As history once decided,
But surely things were different then,
Assurances now provided.
Republican Don and Democrat Joe,
Trouble-maker and pacifist,
Trump taps into the US shadow,
Will law and order have to go,
If Trump proves too hard to resist?
What attitude might policemen show,
Given a number are racist?
Will it be "Good-Bye, Farewell and Amen,"
Have the planets once more collided?
Will history revert to way-back-when,
To a time fratricide abided?
1862 is a long time ago,
Vanished far into the mist,
The blue and the grey will not be on show,
But foolishness may persist.
