A Diabolical Moment (Apropos The Lowering of the Rebel Flag)

Views: 86

A moment

to catch a breath and sigh;

A moment

to pause and shout a cheer;

A moment

to just smile and cry;

A moment

to welcome the healing tear;

Yet, it remains a moment

that’s not without lingering fear.

 

While the symbolism of racist bigotry

may have disappeared;

So many of its ghostly practices

still remain adhered.

So, don’t forget that flag’s history;

but remember its legendary praxis.

the polarization raised by this symbol is a telling sign. pride can easily be misplaced in the presence of evil

Considering who we have as President it is a fascinating bit of promise for the future.

Diabolical, indeed. Hedging their bets this "gesture" will have the same placebo effect electing a biracial, non-descendant of slaves had. "Look what we've done for you." Yet, another empty act. Brilliant penning!
 

Charles2 says:

As the current "political cauldron" boils ...and the circus clowns parade, marks the beginning of the up and coming charade. i feel that Barack Obama did well as a "biracial". the devisive symbol was brought down.in public, perhaps not yet behind closed doors. evil is what it is... chess moves?

Indeed my Brothers. As they pulled down that flag, they continued to shoot down our loved ones. Thanks for the read and feedback. Peace and Love, mlowe5.
