trust (judgement)

there comes a point
I suppose
in every crisis

where the names
of the leaders
matter

the nation’s leaders

the world’s leader

the names and identities
roll through the mind
in a wondering way
during the dark hours
of the middle
of the night

the names that
in these blackest hours
of our times
we need to trust

implicitly
and completely
to know what to do

we need to know
that they
want nothing more
than to do right
and best
by their people
now so dependant
upon them

trump
johnson
putin
xi

morrison
ardern
trudeau

rouhani and khamanei

kim

modi

merkel
macron

the names
that carry our trust
and our hope
in this time
of crisis

history
will judge

no doubt
no doubt

and perhaps
in a small way
I will judge
as well
