Men Fighting ~ Leonard Defrance
We rally around our prejudices,
take deep breaths of offense
until its vinegar coats every word.
Opinion has grown stale in its repetition;
day old bread thrown to wolves who choose
its mold over the fresh yeast of harmony.
The diplomacy of intellectual discourse
has fallen victim to an Oligarchy
selling fear while stealing freedom.
