Division

“The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.”                      – George Orwell

“One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived.”       – Niccolo Machiavelli

Division

An adage I heard often

As a little girl

The bigger they are

The harder they…

Beyond cracked,or tectonics

Seams rival Grand Canyon

Each day new fissures appear

America, broken the

Faults emerging everywhere

Targeting everyone, who

Isn’t part of the problem

There is no unity

States could not be

More divided

Your moral compass sank

Can the ship be far behind?

You cannot make

America great again,

By subjugation, violence

Hatred is the the brand name

We know who is selling it

 

 

Bisous,

Vérités factices

“It is discouraging how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”

–       Noel Coward

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

–       George Orwell

“The great masses of people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.”

–       Adolf Hitler

“For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright, who art as black as hell, as dark as night.”

–   William Shakespeare

Vérités factices

In the beginning

The mirror was cracked

Fragments dispersed

Edges splintered

Scattered

Unrecognizable

As to the piece

Of origin

Dust-like particles

Swept up

Glued into something

Resembling

Legitimacy

Recorded by the

Proper authorities

These lies follow me

Those who could testify

Are dead, save one

She drones on

Spinning her

Webs of

Deceit
