You hear a story

and cling to this narrative,

gripping each element as deep truth

fundamental reality

excuse for your frailty

But it’s fiction

and no matter how loudly you shout

your warped interpretation

insist that white is black,

it won’t transform into fact.

It will only dance to a rhythm of jack boots,

and the sounds of breaking glass.

  2. An apt description of my country America current situation.

    amazing how stories influence. sorties of fiction, can reach out, reach in, influence and instruct, or latch on and get stuck

  4. Simon Says:
