Wrongly Assumed

He assumed he was right.

He assumed you were wrong.

He believed bullish bluster equated with

Strong.

He refused to consider

Prejudice

Lies

Pretense.

He demanded complete admiration

Instead.

He assumed he would lead.

He assumed you will follow.

He may well find himself quite lonely

Tomorrow.

Inoculate

It can spread.

It can blight.

It can seek a new host

To infect

With malaise.

But the ill

Need not creep

Onto me

Onto thy.

We can rise

Above rudeness.

Inoculate

Against hate.

We can choose to

Remain

Stubbornly

Humane.

Bubble Point

When the time comes

To opine

Ethics

(And their current deep dearth),

Let it be known

There’s no option

For hiding in bubbles

Of privileged stealth.

Make it clear

There’s no air

And no vistas ahead

Till we muster the courage

To reclaim truth instead.

Tide Turn

May the tide turn

May the flow return

May the long days of summer

Calm the ongoing churn.

May the sun warm cold hearts

Give their minds better charts

May the surf’s ancient drummer

Pulse a path to new starts.

Care to Observe

It is not

The bruisers

Who denote

Importance

For what one should

Obey or discern.

It is the smallest

And the vulnerable

Who call

True attention

To the biggest

Issues

Left to tend.
