Celebrating a Year

week 582 ~ once upon a time imagination

with one comment

once upon a time imagination
was enough to right the world but not now
and I ask but no one can tell me how
to back away from this situation
where lies topple logic truth’s vacation
should be done but politicians allow
it to call in sick while they disavow
anything that sounds smart with elation
jeer or yell a falsehood loud enough then
maybe someone will believe it until
they get their way or flee the room those men
hold it to be self-evident we will
be fooled or look the other direction
while they sneak up and bury us in swill

  1. How little the truth is valued these days…so very sad.
