Now we speak of
Have we lost all affection for
THE truth or even SOME truth?
“All I want is the truth,
Just give me some truth”
said John Lennon
Would we call that crazy today; and under-hyped?
What with people being labeled, pigeon-holed and stereotyped
Divided into categories, declaring how done wrong we all are………………………………………with a tinge of glee,
While creating new stereotypes for the opposition — how can this be?
Announcing how we must fight, fight, fight
in order to create utopia before the breaking news tonight.
in the name of progress and sanctimonious concern
What are we playing at? What can we learn?
I hear the call to accept everyone’s truth; do not judge,
(while judging so harshly, refusing to budge)
and in the same breath condemn an alternate view
because only subjective reasoning is held to be true
Will we throw away commonsense and common ground
for political gain and power unbound?
Will we turn our backs on the freedom we desired?
It kinda makes me sick
Truth is…. it makes me tired
