Self-Segregation #Poetry

A poem written by Lee Sonogan

Taking a Hard Look at Self-Segregation* – The Wilson Beacon

“Music itself was color-blind but the media and the radio stations segregate it based on their perceptions of the artists.” ― Anthony Kiedis, Scar Tissue

At the brink of the load,
There are serious balanced centrist solutions to play,
Culture wars have barely stopped via a reload,
Any debate taking a position to betray.
Crying at a spliter,
Caucus standing by,
Bias on demand at every printer,
The story is who is next to fry.
Margins projecting outrage,
Anti this, the partisanship of that,
A poor player that struts, and frets his hour up the stage.
Your perspective of reality falls flat.
Democracy has its flaws,
‘Separate but equal’ historically voted in is extreme,
Dictating historical party truths, take a pause,
Endorsing against freedom of slavery is a stain that makes you want to scream.
The republic of the USA and more,
Individualism pushed into the cocky plus excusable prone,
Known to dictate what is going on offshore,
Also, sometimes unable to accept what is reaped is not sown.
Bending the knee,
Worshipping rhetoric as a god,
Hypothesise at the average degree,
Depriving sides aiming to defraud.-
Brainlet’s own personal sequestration,
Echo chambers inciting counter production,
Polarising the intriguing question,
Human nature limits within the circumduction.
Unsustainable juggling acts,
Indicating checks and balances,
Pointless ins and outs of artefacts,
Root causes of simultaneously conflicted paralysis.

“All good people agree,
And all good people say,
All nice people, like Us, are We
And every one else is They:
But if you cross over the sea,
Instead of over the way,
You may end by (think of it!) looking on We
As only a sort of They!” ― Rudyard Kipling, Debits And Credits
