What Have We Become

What have we become?

Both sides are fatally flawed.

We–the laughingstocks!

Politics are the cancer

Eating our nation alive.

Are we to perish,

Fading into history

Like Rome’s empire;

Remembered for its grandeur

Through its crumbling ruins?

Perhaps it’s too late,

Our experiment–a dream

May evaporate

Becoming just a footnote

In the annals of mankind.

    • Sadly I agree and contrary to what most people think this has been a very long time coming. I just hope that cooler heads can prevail before we find that it is too late to change course.

      • It sure seems like it. Like it or not this whole slide started with Reagan although the conservative would rather him be treated as the second coming of Jesus Christ, and has been accelerating with every subsequent administration since since. Sadly I for one don’t know what we can do to stop it, but I hope that someone much smarter than me does.

  1. I wish I knew the answer to this question. I am not certain we know what we are becoming. I fear we will discover the answer – after the fact. 😦

    Great piece of writing;)

    • Isn’t that always the way, we almost never can see the effect of present actions until much later on. Unfortunately so many times it is too late to do anything about it. Thanks so much Kimberly.
