  • Silence is the Symptom Piggybacking Alexandra's Poem


    When inequality racism and hypocrisy are the norm

    Silence is the Symptom

    When corruption greed and exclusion is power

    Silence is the Symptom

    When poverty homelessness and hunger persist

    Silence is the symptom

    When innocent souls die in our wars

    Silence is the Symptom

    When we trash the Earth that gives us life

    Silence is the Symptom

    When we judge someone by their sexual preference

    Silence is the Symptom

    When women are beaten and battered from their homes

    Silence is the symptom

    When our beautiful animals are murdered for body parts

    Silence is the symptom

    When our precious Veterans of War are lost and forgotten

    Silence is the Symptom

    When we stereotype our fellow humans

    Silence is the symptom

    When we condemn the whole group for the acts of a few

    Silence is the Symptom

    When we build walls instead of bridges

    Silence is the Symptom

    When we dishonor and cast aside our elder population

    Silence is the Symptom

    When automatic weapons continue to kill and maim

    Silence is the Symptom



    WHEN WE'RE READY TO TAKE BACK OUR LIVES

    ACTION IS THE SOLUTION

          lunar glide, thank you for reading and I must tell you, I had no idea Bison had also written his own amazing poem. Always a pleasure to hear from you and a high honor in addition....

            Your verse is well presented and spot on.
            It gets harder every day to be apathetic and silent.

              rhymetime, a most perfect and spot on response from you. We have the power as writers to make some noise. Please check out new movie The free State of Jones. 5 stars!

                    Dang - that's a long list Bobby - and I'm sure more could be added! I've heard it said that awareness there's a problem is the first step toward a solution. On to action then!

                      A righteous indignation powerfully told, BDB. This could be a poster plastered all around town to get people thinking about these things.
                      Everyone agrees with what it says, but then they say 'what's on TV'?

                          MHENRY, spot on response as usual. The Zone is the poster around town! I posted on social media and it has gotten a silent, symptomatic response. I figured as much. I put it out there knowing damn well it would be confronting. You know the rest of the story.
