Posturing and belligerence weighs heavy in America.
Oligarchs and their minions speak their true hearts,
Little do they care about decency,
Ignorance replaces common sense…
This is the state of this union.
I do not understand when we digressed to these depths.
Could it be with the election of the first black President,
America’s prejudice finally bubbled back to the surface.
Locked away except in close circles
Little glimmers of ugliness rear their heads
Yearning to be brought into the daylight.
Could we really be this small and this hateful
Or is there hope that these pipers will lead their mice back to the shadows ,
Relegating them to Hell for the sins they speak.
Reasonableness seems to be all but lost!
Eliciting a response from the ill-informed is easy
Calling to to the lowest common denominator
This is truly sad when political correctness is deemed anything but kindness.

Very nice. And no… the mice are here to stay apparently lol. 😉
I think you are right, they are here to stay…they might hide for a bit, but jump back out when we least expect it. 🙂
Good evening Dom… This is terrific and so very true. Quite imaginative on the way you presented it… Loved it… Thank you… I love it when you stir up the hordes…
I try to stir things up occasionally just to keep things interesting. Thanks Michael.
It’s true. As long as everything appears to be going swimmingly there are smiles and graciousness. Change the state of the nation, alter the staus quo? All hell let loose. I’m thinking here of some of the vitriol and negativity that arose during the Scottish Independence referendum. A pat on the head at the idea, much uglier when the idea may be seen as a possible reality. Animosity arose on both sides to different degrees for different reasons but the underlying threat was , ‘do not rock the boat….or else’.
Sweetness and smiles or poison in your coffee – take your pick. The LCD is easily appealed to if stirred enough.
You obviously understand what we are going through here in the States having gone through it yourself…I guess it happens everywhere whether we want it to or not.
I haven’t given up yet. 😉
Nor have I, there is too much to lose. 🙂
Good stuff! 🙂
Thank you so much. 🙂
