They told you what to think and what to feel and to believe

They lied in all your faces and said, ‘it’s democracy.’

They fed you false truths, rumors and you swallowed them all whole

Their words and propaganda made a fool of all the world

And now I have to explain these fucked up numbers to my kids

How hate and cruelty and fear can turn a nation the way this did.

 

Numbers

    I think the best thing you could possibly say is that you will be there for them. And maybe give them a hug…and a cookie. In fact, I think we could all use that right about now.

  2. Yes it came as a rude shock. Hope you managed to explain it to your kids – that would be a hard one.
