  • Truth and Consequences

    The truth does not matter.
    That the author
    has deemed that elocution
    palatable, let alone digestible,
    reflects a predicate poverty of principle.
    Projects a politics of the cynical.

    The truth does not matter.
    The temerity of the utterance
    presumes a morally vacuous audience.

    The truth does not matter.
    Is an indictment of us,
    and our response
    in the face of its articulation,
    is either evidence of guilt
    or repudiation, in disgust!

    How long will it take for “the shift”? We are at a crossroad and we need to get on the righteous path. I wish we had our previous leader back because that hope he talked about has a stark contrast for comparison. Keep speaking out Dwayne.

      . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . On a huge hill,

      Cragged and steep, Truth stands, and he that will

      Reach her, about must and about must go,

      And what the hill's suddenness resists, win so.

      Yet strive so that before age, death's twilight,

      Thy soul rest, for none can work in that night.

      To will implies delay, therefore now do;

      Hard deeds, the body's pains; hard knowledge too

      The mind's endeavours reach, and mysteries

      Are like the sun, dazzling, yet plain to all eyes.

      John Donne, Satire III

        Editing a comment
        A riveting piece.

        Truth is garnered by deliberate pursuit.

        It requires both humility and honesty.

        Such ambition is sorely lacking these days.

      True change comes with action. Your words are words of a leader Dwayne.

        Don’t give up Dwayne. There are many of us devoted to the reveal. A formidable foe we face.
