Republicans and Civil Rights Wars

I can, at last, begin to see
why Trump reminds himself, assiduously,
of Republican Party CoFounder Lincoln.

He believes, as did Lincoln,
it is our time to redress
winnings v. White male supremacy over slavery,
and women,
and children,
and Earth Herself,
and xenophobic racist losings
of the U.S. Civil War.

Except, one critical difference,
While Trump fuels patriotic investment
where Red States once were hate and fear exhausted,
Lincoln sided Republicans
and all his other multi-party Cabinet,
with defining patriotism
by where Blue States
are climates of health and freedom
now growing,
if the Red States would just join with us
in moving on toward
our multiculturally polypathic cooperative rewards,
the spoils of UnCivil Wars long gone.

It seems likely
Lincoln’s Republican remains
are turning black and bluer
in his green-grassed grave.
