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.
