 Poetry Challenge Day 75 (Sat Dec 18)

America is sliding into Autocracy…
Part of me is shocked, part is not.

This has been coming…
We are a divided people.

A divided people in need of…
Something to bring us together.

A unifying principle to unite us…
How about a war?

Something much better for the world than another war would be preferred… I think the real story here is that we as a people have lost some of the common threads that held us together us a nation and a people since the country’s founding. This has manifested in my lifetime — I think it stems from the movement espousing “unrestricted personal liberty.”
