@prattprattpratt Dropping a hot new poem I found.
Ding to the left.
Dong to the right.
The reverberations swell.
Ding dong!Ding dong!
They clang the outrage bell.
Ding dongs on the far right fringes
Squeaking mad like rusty hinges.
Ding dongs from the far left squad
Fixed on answers outside God.
The media plays them like a fiddle
Drowning out the healthy middle.
Pick your tribe. State your name
DISREGARD: WE’RE ALL THE SAME!
(Burdened by a sinful heart and hiding in some form of shame.) Change the channel! Don’t be late!
Pundits tell you who to hate!
Who’s a racist? Who’s a fake?
24 hours of news to break!
Skewering truths, spewing sewage,
leading mobs of frenzied voices,
With two choices, red or blue,
And key points to regurgitate.
Echo chamber ringing,
rips the fabric of society. (Followed by an ad for a pill you pop to stop anxiety.)
Get your blood a pumpin’ with some whisper fueled assumption,
About someone who wore somethin’ or some singled out opinion
among tweeters by the billions “But this one was so outrageous
And egregious and alarming!”
And you’re angry for the anger in your heart that had been forming
Is on the verge of boiling over
And you try but are unable
Chernobyl in your heart the chain reaction is unstable
And the blood pressure is higher than the moment just before...
And the next commercial thankfully
Is a high blood pressure cure.
There’s a rhythm to this madness
If you take a sec to look
One option is unplug
Put down your phone
pick up a book But the other option probably is more helpful and realistic
Find the humor, check the facts, and try to remain optimistic.
Ask yourself the question: who profits from my rage?
And prevent them from lining up their pockets with that booty.
We’re His children despite race, creed, preference or age.
Under God we’re indivisible.
To stay United is our duty.
