Dedicate to a brother and a friend, whose emotional despair compelled me to write this few lines because I see the ungluing that's going on among ourselves and that, to survive as a Nation, we can't allowed for a few to drive a wedge between so many.






Politicians, see what you have done, forcing
unthinkable words out of a friend of my,
he told me, “I love my land, I hate my land,”
and I saw in his eyes that he was to cry,
for that innocence lost somewhere far away,
which he remember because of a Silver Star;
when pinned down, he stood put in the rear,
saving everybody by placing his life on the line.

Why is it that we are a Nation going down
that destructive political ways that divide,
and forget what Cesar said about conquering
all those that from each other become apart,
because the walls will come crashing all
if you let a personal conviction your house
open to strangers to come with discord
and destroy the very peaceful principles inside.

Don’t let silly political divergences
make you to push your brother apart.

Cesar was a very smart general indeed. He realized all he had to do was sit back and let discord do most of his fighting for him, then he could just stroll in and take over. Countries in the Orient have always been known for their patiencs. Maybe it isn't the Musulim terrorists we should actually be afraid of. Perhaps we should keep an eye one the huge nation of China who is already poisioning us with thier lead based painted toys, and tainted pet food. If pet food and lead based paint can get by, what's next?

"... he told me, “I love my land, I hate my land,” ..." His 'ungluing' is felt by many of us. With every passing day we are becoming a more divided nation - the have's and the have not's. Our politicians sit in their "ivory tower" dictating and forgetting that we are a nation conceived Under God - with liberty and justice for all. Perhaps, it is time for each of us to write to our congress people, tell them what we think, offer suggestions on how to improve our country, and thank them for remembering that they were elected to serve their contingencies BEST interests.

God bless you. Kathy

'Ungluing' is a superb way of describing how the soul of man is darkening towards his fellow man. I feel for your friend Georg. This madness, or forced alienation,, is not inclusive to him only though. It is becoming a pandemic as the love of most grows cold. Excellent insight poet!

George I can feel your pain, I would have thought that it would be more possible under your system of governance then anywhere, since you don't have to vote by party dictum, but the politicans could sit in accord of what is best for the country not the party, but I guess they always find a way to serve the own interests first, don't they!

political interest groups and their representatives are certainly tearing this country apart ... unfortunately, not much will change and what does will be for the worse ... we need a uniting spirit in the political arena ... in these times, almost an impossible feat ...

These politicians have gotten waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of hand. They forget that they are supposed to help the people; that we put them there. Get a little green in their pocket, they act like they're God. They don't help the poor, the elderly, the handicapped, even our veterans. No. They are more concerned about their own affairs than to help those who are truly most in need.

Or in my case: I am 100% disabled, yet I can't get on disability. I have a colostomy, walk on two crutches due to worsening arthritis, have hearing/vision/learning disabilities, have high blood pressure/anemia, low thyroid, etc.), and then those jerkosauruses tell ME "I'm NOT disabled enough; I can work?" NO one is going to hire me. I'm disabled, over forty (fifty in less than two years), don't have a car (can't afford one, not even a dead one). I have NO income. WHAT Christmas?? Very frustrating!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

I'm sorry about your friend. If I could help, believe me, I would!

Politicians are above the law, they forget whom they serve. Dem or Repub, doesn't matter--they get their fat paychecks, free medical, perks none of us could even dream of affording. Let them live on what I make--less than $230.00 a month, and I served my country! Christmas? What's that? Can't afford...

Sad one, today, Georg, sorry I couldn't help your friend. :(

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
