How low can we go?

November 11, 2016

moral fiber

not the hokey religious kind

ethics

respect

honesty

integrity

used to be traits

of supposed leaders

im this country

especially the prez

i think the usa

has bottomed out

on D

all of the above

this November election

is in many ways

visible proof

sure this has been a patriarchal nation

from the get go

and maybe

because I saw signs of change

i thought we were on

track

but alas this does not seem so

i and others cannot blame

the dis grace

of the highest office

on anyone

except us

people so disconnected

plugged in

distracted by entertainment

and foolery

we have become not only

disconnected from

others but also

ourselves

i work with people daily

in an office

and then on

the road

we talk

engage

have conversations

not just fluff

but deep stuff sometimes

because it’s what we do

i volunteer and with others

we talk and engage

none of these people are exactly

like me

We have some in common

and some different

and try kindness

when people preach to me

about this

i get annoyed babies

i am already connected in

and connecting more daily

with people I don’t know

get out of

the caves

out of the neighborhoods

or if you don’t go out your house

get out

unplug

talk

and most importantly

LISTEN

and maybe

just maybe

we can restore

respect

integrity

honesty

and more

we can create enough

together

maybe even more than

that

at a grassroots level

that the patriarchy

will not be able to survive

my post election dream

 

peace
