“Give him a chance.”

Give him a chance, some of my friends said,
let him show what he can do and what’s in his head
And so we appeased, mollifed, and waited
to see what he’d do, to see what he had slated.
And shortly we saw news blackouts and silence
the environment dying under industrial violence
Ethics took a back seat, greed moved behind the wheel
while our new leader focused on the art of the deal
Too many more chances to judge the man’s worth
and we might be bidding good-bye to our beautiful Earth.
