Empty Words Orated



He stands before the mike

Attempting to speak sense

Yet only flies escaped

His mouth leaving

An empty mind echoing

The words left behind

Just a sad old clown

Without the make up

This is a "Wow" moments in such few words.

So sorry you feel that way. Being cynical will not solve problems. Facing the facts and action will. Some folks like to lay blame and block action that is positive for everyone. I'm really surprised how many of our elderly white folks seem to be hornswoggled by a few rich manipulators who want things to stay the same so they can continue to fleece us.

I provided capital (at high interest) for an immigrant to open a business that greatly benefits the elderly (elder care at half the cost of a terrible nursing home) in the community. Elderly stupid white folks fought her and cost her thousands of dollars, but she is now in business, providing a very wonderful service and ten new jobs. I borrowed everything I could and my retirement is now secure. The banks wouldn't lend her a nickel. The billionaires would only give her money if they could take the business (can you spell shark?)

A provoking capture of our current events William...sometimes the best way to watch them is with the sound off.

peace and love, Carole~

Sometimes I wonder, William, if we've passed the PONR in America. Your poem is a compendious (and humorous) look at one of the many flawed players in our gravely divided country.
