Angry voices, unbridled venom.
Wired (and wireless) pokes and jabs targeting a multitude of faceless entities.
Ugliness leaching outward, spreading like a stain
Or rather, what we once knew as
- The American Way
We are now a nation no longer united but rather horribly, inextricably divided.
Talking heads and a 24/7 vomitude of news and commentary
Twisting ‘freedom’ to spew hate
And incite fear, violence and an uneasy division
Of our fellow compatriots, instilling disrespect and incivility far and wide.
What’s our way forward? No answers here.
Sadly, this very medium
While a powerful tool for good
Still contributes to this implosion of ill-will.
I’m hopeful, however, that we can come together and find a way. United we stand and, truly, divided we WILL fall.
