Political Dirt – A Haiku

The Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #107 words for this week are “Pie & Dust.”I must say, these are some interesting choices from Ronovan this week! I bet he wants pie! I wonder what kind?

These words just seemed to gush out of me! I used grime, for the word, dirt. The word pie was able to stay just as it was… I sill wonder what kind of pie Ronovan wants. J

On a more serious note, I can’t shy away from the political turmoil in our country right now. Both sides think they are right. So, it is with little imagination that I wonder if they are both wrong. Change is a powerful motivator of people. I get that. What bothers me is the vitriol that is slung around between people who really don’t even know each other.

Social media is horrible. I am seriously thinking of leaving Facebook. People who I admire and respect have turned into monsters. I can’t figure it out. Since when did it become wrong to have differences?

Here is what I know… we should never discuss politics and religion. We will never agree.

Why do people think it is alright to say how they feel, but do not want to hear the other side? When you spread political discourse and hatred, all it does is divide us as a people, and a nation.

The amount of truth in political posts is seldom the real truth. Be vigilant. Look up the facts. Then, keep it to yourself. No matter what you say, you will NOT change other people’s opinion.

Please stop the hate. We are not enemies. We are Americans.
