~ Thursday Thoughts: “A House Divided” ~

blames, blasphemes ally

your fault — you should have saved me!

falls on wary ears

***

politics tricky

adapt or perish in swamp

crocodiles circle

***

in over his head

sinking he thrashes and flails

as lifelines withdraw

***

rewrite history

quote speech verbatim (except)

the most crucial words

***

 

bad blood flows freely

snap go teeth of swamp critters

…moving right along…

***

divisions deepen

snaky snarky stabs cleave core

carve path toward split

***

“a house divided

cannot endure half and half

must become one thing,

all one thing or all

the other.” Which will it be —

“all slave or all free”?  Abraham Lincoln

  1. I hope Caligula doesn’t destroy us all with all of his insanity, bombs, and divisiveness!
