Mama Zen's given words:
adulting - (in a way characteristic of a responsible adult)
alt-right (an ideological grouping characterized by a rejection of mainstream politics and by the use of online media to disseminate deliberately controversial content)
glass cliff  (woman or minority aspiring to a leadership position where the risk is high)
latinx (A gender-neutral or to Latino or Latina)
woke (alert to injustice in society, especially racism)

Elizabeth's given word:
Day 39  -  silence

Silence is not really an option
Adulting through an alt-right insistence
is not right either

Treading on a fine line
whether a glass cliff or latinx
will alert impacts on woke

Beauty of online media being an
unlikely savior to the wiles of
shenanigan assertions of wild
politics is kept in check

Though the euphoria of supporters
is still on high but the voice of
skeptics are just as deafening

  1. This is a great poem though I am not policically minded/

  2. One yelling at the other it always seems to be as no one really listens.
