Poetry – The Simple Things

The Simple Things

It always starts with the simple things –

A view expressed, a reason.

Then soon, if you oppose that view

You find you’re committing treason.

They start with the weak –

Create a state of fear to stoke up the hate.

By the time they knock upon your door

It’s already much too late.

So it is incumbent on us

To defend those who are in need.

To create unity, partnership and collaboration

Which supersedes all greed.

It is amazing how these populists have orchestrated things in order to get their hands on wealth and power.

Fear, hate, nationalism, fascism and a set of dominoes. All it takes is gullibility.
