Fletcher Man - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis

An assumption of rules, of boundaries and guidelines
Of universal rights that are shared globally
This myth that abounds and melds into minds
Sounds wonderful when spoken of so eloquently

A thousand solutions for a thousand views
Prejudices from experience fly like errant arrows
Our pin cushioned world will bristle with opinions
How did we miss the mark with a vision so narrow?

Topic(s) of this poem: prejudice, pride

    Its always good to challenge prevailing opinions and views. I believe that data are data, but the conclusions we draw from them can vary. You point this out. (Report) Reply

    The assumption is a sound, logical one, but in practice it is quite different. (Report) Reply

    I have a different belief in who the heroes and villains are in this world. I think that each person carries with them based on their own experience a feeling of what the problems are and what the solutions are. I quite frankly respect but disagree with the conclusions that most people reach. That does not make me popular but that has never concerned me.
