Observations of a too near reality. Citizens are fodder for greedy politicians.

c.2011 M. Bennett Hooper

My friend Larry Pinkney informs us about “The Pathological Theater of The absurd”, where many have chosen to believe the lies of the Democratic and Republican parties.

Many Blacks are hesitant to address any disagreement with our beloved President for fear of being viewed as traitorous if we question his actions or inaction which places us on the hamster treadmill running in a cage on a squeaky wheel going nowhere.

The insanity caused by a lack of integrity throughout the political spectrum caused those considering themselves sane to look closer in realities mirror and admit that enough is enough as too many are bound by the fear of leaving this caged ride to nowhere when nowhere has been accepted as a painless reality.

A reality which is in itself a too silent scream as too few of us risk the true exercise of the courage required to awaken from a too long dream which casts us a pawns in an endless game of chess where the players have no intention of winning as they live for the endless game of feeding the hamsters as they prolong their insanity.

Whose pet are you and how are you called?
Democrat, Republican, Independent, or comfortably ignorant awaiting the day when you will be released to become the next gourmet meal.

Vegetarians are not safe they are the last of the undecided on today's menu.
Weeds still kill the grass and the vegetables are soon to follow as they assume safety in maintained gardens.

Wake up calls are like broken records by those who refuse to try a new more creative dance.
Think not then continue running in the cage with squeaky wheels going nowhere.
It is not a Black thing it's a thinking thing affecting us all.
