Lies Our Countries Told Us

Get down! is no joke-
Amazon eyes meet
black, jungle eyes
No one backS down!
The genetic zipcode 
has travelled over
two (2) continents
on a tight-rope  
to say a false/friendly 
"Good Morning/Buenos Dias!'"
We serve it up with a side order of MEANS WELL
like  the Connecticut River in January
the pieces...peaces
float and bob upward near 
cease-fire redemptions
just in case mutual dreams
come to fruition
during the Panasonic night.

    Nice write Ellen! The truth ceases to have weight when it is only one-sided, all the facts need to be presented for people to come to a logical conclusion. Nicely done!
