... wearing the colors of murder. ...

The world is on spin cycle, coming
apart at the seams.  Bleach can't get rid
of the blood and no amount of tears
will ever bring back what we have lost ---

mankind dons the garb of violence
and marches in boots of ugliness.
This group thinks they're right and everyone
else is wrong and that one thinks they're the

only way to salvation.  Bullets
fly quicker than words and more of our
brothers and sisters die in the streets,
wearing the colors of murder.  Peace

has no chance.  The love of many rinses
cold and hearts are permanently stained ---
no wonder no one wants to do the
wash.  Why can't we learn to get along?

absolute freedom has many perils while suppressed freedom and disillusionment are fraught will fear, hatred and open dogma - mankind's wash has always been stained with the blood of ignorance, pride and prejudices and the water of dialog without sincerity will never was them clean - an astute observation of our times and all times Karla - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Things are bad, so very bad I know. I cannot help but hope they will improve and that your fear and anger and futile frustration will be assuaged, at least a bit in not too long a time. Excellent work though, really good. Be well, Kathy

Madness! They and it will not come out with a wash.

So sorry, Karla. But when there is a mass of those that insist we believe as they believe or we will be killed. When our strength is diminished by an amateur president that would rather kiss ass than show strength. When those that relied on American strength and backing can no longer rely on America, sadly... so sadly, the world will burn and prey for Israel as this time they will not be blindly led to slaughter.

Which is exactly why I don't want to have anything to do with the news. The national and international news disgusts me. Know I can't live in a bubble, but the news is depressing; depressed enough; don't need to feel even worse .... powerfully penned heartbreak! Well done, Karla!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(
