Blindfolds and Sundries.

I wound up being asked to post this by another poster earlier today. A textbook case of my fingers doing the poetry thing when I don't mean for them to.

You said,
"The water is perfect,
why not stop the whining
and take a dip?"

The "water" you speak of
is soiled
with runoff from fracking,
the blood of innocents,
and the powder of munitions
we keep selling to Saudi Arabia--
who need I remind you,
created the very same brand of Islam
that ISIS worships.

The water is only perfect
if you're blindfolded.

1. I have just started to dip my toes


into reading poetry, and this is my first post and reading in this group, so my opinion might not a big deal, but I really liked this. K&R.
