Protesting Against What They Had Accepted


Okay.
Okay,
I get it.
Those who are protesting against,
What they had accepted.
Are the very ones who now oppose,
The others who had then objected...
What was once accepted,
But now protest against.
And anyone who disagrees with this confusion,
Is rejected to be considered a nonconformist!
To be ignored for any sense from this,
They wish to have made understood...
Right?

'And 'they' who use to be 'them'...
Are wondering why so many children,
Are suffering from 'Attention Deficit Disorders'.'

What in the world is that?

'Something different than being Bi-polar.
To avoid being labelled mentally unfit.'

WHO comes up with this stuff?

'Well...
It's safe to say,
It is becoming easier to separate,
The ones who are mentally stable.'

Oh?
How?

'They were the ones depicted as being crazed,
Long ago by those who are now attempting to explain...
Their involvement in implementing all the nonsense.
And of course,
Those who continue to follow their directives,
Are depending upon them to find solutions.'

LOL...

'Don't laugh.
They are very serious about it.'

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
