Sticks and Stones
At one time,
Inflammatory language was bad enough.
Sticks and stones right ?!!
But in today's narrative
A new description keeps popping up ;
The "weaponization" of words.
Whether or not one is being irresponsible,
Or just clueless & oblivious to one's ranting,
One thing is dangerously clear ;
Thought become words,
Words become action,
This combination appears to have no consequence,
For those carrying out such fear mongering dribble......
Sticks & stones, may break my bones,
But words will never hurt me.
We are certainly facing an ugly version of American civility.
Be Love.....BE Peace
