Sunday Sonnet!

πŸŽ†

I can do naught, but marvel at the mind
That credulously to untruths succumb,
As though the eye of reason is struck blind,
And senses, all, are chronically numb;
Has common sense her age old insight lost,
Confounded by unfounded wiles of fear?
Can ways be found corrosion to accost,
Lest treasured mores forever disappear?
Let not the breath of despair foul the air,
Contaminating hope to spawn discord,
Lest nationhood be rent beyond repair,
Sent hurtling to a future, untoward.
Armed with forefathers’ grit and self-belief,
The people shall defeat presumptuous chief.

  1. Good morning dear Bushka….Common Sense – where has it gone? I do believe that our eye for reason has been struck blind. Not everyone of course, but it does seem to be the prevailing way of being. We must be strong. Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend. Janet xxx
