~ WALLS & FENCES... ~

Walls and fences are full of suspicions...... their very names
Make it so,
Fenced in, walled up, I breathe in their perfume of
Disenchantment,
For this atmosphere is not a perfume..... but a breeding ground
For the germs of warfare...... which remain, as yet, unborn
It has no taste through distillation....... it is odorless
And molds for many years
Before its spores are airborne...... and ripened enough
To be considered deadly intent,
Or the beaded sweat...... on the belly of a bomber
Where soldiers, following orders......... have a waltz with her
And her political whispers
Become the rumors........... that dry her sweat
And are later considered
The spoils of war....... which are then fenced in
And walled up........ behind the armor
Of the vault of government
Where
Simple suspicions
Are always
Probable cause....

HI Tony...I think there are so many lies and cover-ups over this Covid-19 virus...and I don't know if we will ever know the truth but suffer from the hidden agendas behind its manufacture.Β  There is a silent war going on, and behind all the heinous crimes, there is always suspicion and theories, and yet we are unable to definitively prove who is behind the harmful decisions.Β  Good people suffer from evil one's plans.Β  It has always been this way....I likeΒ  your use of walls and fences, as if that really keeps people out from causing harm.Β  Love n Hugs, xoΒ Β

Tony!Β  Β 

Yes, walls and fences everywhere!Β  Our government is constructing them daily and they are constructed with lies and malice.Β  The citizens of this country are treated like enemies of the state.Β  There is an underlying cruelty behind the laws that are being considered/passed for the welfare of the people.Β  I pray for peace daily.Β  We are experiencing pandemic and the POTUS is literally withholding medical supplied from state governments!Β  Β Walls, fences, borders and obstructions.Β  What next...well, as for me, I am ready to vote in November.

You're so right GREG!!…..I don't often do anything political....thank you for noticing that.....and I too am saddened by the insight that governments and Big Business are so covert in their activities.....but it is becoming a bit more transparent......CEO's are resigning by the hundreds these days!!…...Go figure!!
