Columbus Statues Defaced

A haiku

High-jacked history
An Autumn of mutiny
We are lost at sea

 

A Step Beyond

A step beyond The Enemy lurks
directing his army  of mindless jerks
in the conduct of an Uncivil War
and no one knows what they’re fighting for.

Foundations shake, conventions break
and the privileged take the knee.
Can a step too far eclipse the star
of a land that once was free?

    Columbus was great in fact
    We have history to know by that
    And the present day is testament to that fact no more no less
    But the sub human nature of “modern”
    Based on communism all things sodden
    Inverts the good and bad no shame
    Is the concept of their game
    So hate and malice are that love
    That “the modern” “views” try to “give” us
