Statements of Absurdity

Source of Inspiration


Statements of absurdity
are all around us
we call them “quotes”
pass them on FaceBook
promise them
tout them
but never, ever
challenge their veracity

Statements of absurdity
flow from the lips of politicians
we wave banners
call for marching bands
promises, deception, greed
platform planks built on lies
still we cast our vote
for he who had the biggest horn

How is it that
we are so gullible
eager to believe
afraid to say
“the Emperor has no clothes?”

  1. I’m going to assume you didn’t see my quote recently about quotes. LOL Just because words have a nice tone and buttery flow doesn’t mean they speak truth, have value, or even make sense. Think before you like.
