Poisoned Flower

Updated: Dec 31, 2020


when i was a young man growing up i thought we'd overcome the horrors that our past had brought we wouldn't stand again for the populist's drug cause we had learned our lessons from the graves they dug

we'd all know better than to fall for hate cause we had felt the pain that'd be our fate "us against them" is not what our world would be truth and real solutions is what we would see


yet now it seems we have forgotten what it takes to be free that it means to live together without fear is the key to not have your neighbor see you as the enemy because you think a different answer yields a better destiny

or even worse because you can't see past the color of her skin and whitewashed history and then forgot about that sin that lingers in the air despite the self-righteous perfume that we all so much like to consume


and you shrug about the sound of lies and damn civility cause your tribe | won't let you reason flexibly compromise is treason as some cynics control politics principles and truth don't matter to the power addicts

always distrust those who raise tempers and emotions dark streaks that far too often caused explosions resist all opportunity to shape hate into power because human evil easily grows from that poisoned flower


It's like that virus so desirous eating away at society it's like that virus so desirous so destructive in its notoriety it's like that virus so desirous how hate and intolerance threaten our life it's like that virus so desirous undermining the world of democracy


It's like that virus so desirous normalizing insanity it's like that virus so desirous destroying trust and legitimacy it's like that virus so desirous basking in outrageous conspiracies it's like that virus so desirous please protect your mind with civility


It's like that virus so desirous replacing facts with ideology it's like that virus so desirous ears bleeding from hypocrisy it's like that virus so desirous make deals with the devil despite the means it's like that virus so desirous driving our world to autocracy
