(5) Je Ne Comprends Pas (2/7)

“It’s not my job to be the world’s critic.” Jane McGonical

Draining swamps seems like too complex a thing
Especially when compared to matters at hand.
I grew up on the PSA, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”
Sometimes it seems mine has gone in that direction
Because the insanity of the politicians
Seems like fairy tales compared to the verbal onslaught
My inner voice pummels me with.

Writer friends tell me to think more,
My wife tells me to think less,
That voice just creates stories to keep the fire burning
To keep me in whatever it is that doesn’t allow that extra 10%
I just read about.
Whatever it is that is going on with our government,
I can’t be bothered with it anymore.
