It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare. ~ Mark Twain
I’m in an alternate universe.
Back to my old days I’d like to reverse.
What are these things I see on TV?
Nothing reflects my life or me.
They call the show reality,
but the people have no hospitality.
Not to mention the lack of morality.
My lifestyle has nothing in commonality.
The news media must think we’re incompetent.
Or, they think we’re not cognizant.
They speak as if we’re helpless.
Feigning their control as progress.
Then I hear more news
about someone who has the blues,
because they’ve been offended
by something said that was unintended.
So many words can be misconstrued,
and people take it as being rude.
Soon we’ll have to ban all language
for sensitive people with too much baggage.
How did I get to this foreign place?
How do I navigate through its space?
I feel like a stranger here.
Maybe the younger generation understands this frontier.
