Day #5: A Pipe Dream


IMG_0014

A Capitol Dome

Left

Right

Where’s the Center

Laws, laws, laws

The more there are

The less we become

A Sausage Factory

Blue

Red

What’s wrong with Purple

A lost art

Compromise

A new method

Entrenchment, refusal, denial

The house of cards

Decimate it

And start over

A new foundation

Four walls

Respect

Fairness

Opportunity

Communication

And a roof

Built with tiles

Common purpose

Unity of effort

A new Capitol Dome

A purple middle

Produces

Steak

Not Sausage

    THANK YOU, Mark. You know what I like about this poem? The truth of it. Obviously. Perfect illustration of a broken system.
