A Must Read Post from Judy Dykstra-Brown

For some reason, I’m unable to reblog this post of Judy’s (thank you, WordPress), so I’m just going to cut and past her post below. Please go visit her post and tell her how great it is.

Naked Truth

His truths are vile graffiti scrawled in charcoal on a wall,
your belief in them, immobile—not budgeable at all.
You spout online rhetoric not based on any fact,
using a selfish tyrant to pattern how you act.

I simply cannot understand people of your kind.
Will any foul deed propagated pry open your mind?
Fire, tempest, pestilence—what further natural curse
will finally persuade you that it’s only getting worse?

Divide and conquer is his game, and he’ll use any means
for engineering chaos and creating scenes
matching brother against brother till our nation rips apart.
Destroying all it stood for. Ripping out its heart.

What quality does he display that moves you all to court him?
What single act for common men leads you to support him?
Children kenneled up like animals? Men shot because they’re black?
One-by-one his sane advisers all given the sack?

Our emperor has no clothes on, please take the time to see.
Look at all the devastation—what our country’s come to be.
We are a global laughing stock. If you’d expand your view
beyond Fox News, perhaps this truth would be clear to even you!

    Fandango: Have you used “Press This?” Not the one at the bottom of the blog, but one you install on above the contents where you have your inbox and whatever else you use frequently. It works. it’s not as easy as “reblog,” but it does work and you have a little more freedom on how to arrange it. Try it. It’s especially good for something you want to schedule and not run immediatelly.

      I see “Press This” as one of the “Share” buttons. Is that what you’re referring to?

        I think that is what Marilyn is referring to. I tried it once a short while ago, and found it to be less than useless 😦

    That is a great poem but the last stanza is fabulous! It just struck me so deeply.
