I always wondered
Why one side has to be true
The other false
Have we lost reason?
Can we not understand
Two things can be false!
I was briefly an anti-war democrat
Until they embroiled us further into endless wars
To those who remain “true blue”
Isn’t it about time you paid attention?
Have we come to a place
Where the enlightenment is…
“Skin color and gender are more important than truth, or actions?”
“That any Wall Street crony, lobbyist, or military contractor, is qualified, by reason of birth?”
I’m sorry if I sound like an idiot
But the whole thing is idiotic
I’ve said it since 2001
I won’t stop saying it
Dig for yourself
Test their careers
Did they ever improve our country?
I hope I’m not losing any of you
I’ll get back to being my usual hippy self
After all, I’m trying to become a poet
Not a political pundit
“An I ain’t dat smart no how”
