America's Real Enemy


They that usher a newness to be

From thoughts picked like California grapes & strawberries

Candidates that exceed their campaign promises

Minorities that are human

Distinction that are more sacred than laws

War that're more vile than an enemy

Truth that is less significant than compassion

Living standards divorced from living wages

A woman who can give birth

A Neo nazi and peace activist

The idea of racism

Protecting human citizens

Land

Disarmament

Refugees

Mexica ns

Democracies

Peace

Justice

Earth

The moon

Europa

American Society will conquer you all!

    From this list it seems that America just might be its own worst enemy. The enemy within is mistaking a flower garden as a field of weeds. You have a lot to say, and say it well. Keep on writing Tim. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
