Replace the Blight

The world
Seeks solace
In the darkness of night
Cold breaths
Exhaled
As they watch
Us fight
With our ballots
A division
Formed on waves
Of misinformation
And a cruel tongue
Hoping for reform
Back on track
To a progressive
Future
No more
Blast
From the past

A poem I wrote for VSS365 on Twitter. Posting it here first, the word prompt is solace.
