Common Perception

By Scott Bailey © 2018

We all see it
All perceive the truth
Children in cages
We know what it means
Here come the memes
The outraged status
Rules the day
We turn away
Up next?
Prepare your placards!

Or is all as it appears?
Where is the truth in what we see?
If we cannot believe what we see – we will give up belief.
And there’s the point.

Some poems
Short and sweet
Unlike me

Tarns tributaries tumble down
heather cloaked hills
red-brown tufts twitching in the wind
Cold water, cold air, eagle riding the high winds
Wolves range over moors
Sheep shiver, shepherds huddle
Fire crackles, broth steams
Tarns tributaries tumble down
heather cloaked hills
