Fake News, The Big Lie, Jan 6th, Nothing Classified

There's a symbol for our justice, Holding scales while she is blind. Yet it seems the 'MAGAteers' have extended This further, adding deaf and dumb to their mind. Because they have made the choice not to See, hear, or think, as they ignore reality. While they follow a corrupted voice, laden With false notions and irrationality. This conviction has seduced their soul, with Visions of fear and lethal consequence sustained. Using a barrage of powerful fiction, giving faith To a utopia without discord ... but they're ordained. The stupidity is clearly seen, as they avoid Any facts that disturb their view. As these followers become so deeply entrenched, They can't escape the shadow that's untrue. Having seen the danger progress, while a Fragile democracy wavers on the brink. Watching a majority come under constant attack, And a privileged minority tries to silence those who critically think.

I agree, when facts are seen as the enemy and lies are allowed to florish, our democracy is on the brink, excellent last stanza, so well written overall~

Thank you Michelle for your comments, as I feel compelled to write and put to words this historic chapter that we are all struggling through. I can't see anything more important.
