Today your behavior is decided
The nation watching is divided
You’ve described your actions as silly
Boyhood pranks leaving us chilly
Your true colors shined brightly through
The thin veneer that is you
We saw you for what you are
A privileged bully hiding behind the bar
We’ve met many like you over the years
Arrogance worn as a right, bringing tears
We do not see you as enigmatic
To us you appear more manic
A privileged man full of anger
So quick to unleash his langor
The available position you will not be denied
You shouted, screamed and even cried
We watched your accuser so strong and credible
Your reaction contrived and unbelievable
The country today pays attention
Your position is in undeniable contention
A decision to come not just for you
But fifty years more of this preview
Women of this country should be scared
A judge deplete of empathy might just be declared

This powerful poem sums up everything. Thank you
Thanks so much for reading it 🙂
privileged bully says it so well – I am not well versed with the politics but some stories have similar characters in every government
Yes, Gina. The US has taken a huge step backwards with regard to women. It’s quite disconcerting.
this is very sad and disturbing
Thank you1 🙂
Wow! You gave me chills. So well written.
I had something completely different for your prompt, but this morning I was on a tear after listening to the news! Thanks for reading 🙂
So glad you shared. You are welcome to add more than one post.
I keep praying for a blindside from those swing Republicans.
Pollyanna I know 😒
One would hope this would inspire the zillions of nonvoters to get off their lazy butts and vote against these entitled jerks, not that the Dems are perfect, but at least they try to stand against racism, misogyny, etc., yet we will not see that. People will not vote as usual and bitch anyway.
I’m hoping women will make the change😌
I feel your frustration. Thank you for your poem today.
Thank you for reading. Today and tomorrow could be a dark day for women 😢
It’s a sad day for this country, as it seems that his confirmation is all but secure. What a shame; what a sham.
Collins, Murkowski et al are maybe going to give us an October surprise? I have to believe these women are not going to sell us out 😒
I think Collins will support Kavanaugh, unfortunately.
Yes, very unfortunate. 😡
