    Well Meant Derivatives

    When will the media get off the throne
    Of Political Correctness and finally move on
    To uniting behind our present administration
    And make strides towards healing our world and nation

    When will our so call Christian society
    Get beyond their projected false Christianity
    It’s easy to subscribe to Pharisee-like distortion
    Concerning issues from gay- rights to abortion

    We sound off loud about issues like that
    And whether it’s right or wrong heatedly debate the fact
    Yet when we brazenly become the attorneys for God
    On how he feels about things then to me it gets hard

    In one dimensional thinking we want to punish them
    But the part of living peacefully with all men
    We tend to conditionally limit to live like us
    Or get your buns off the religious bus

    And the media these hot button items press
    Keeping our society in a literal mess
    Stepping across the boundaries of journalism
    With incongruent opinionism

    When dictators disguised as journalists use
    As a platform the media to slant the news
    And the networks pay them well to do it
    No wonder some of nation’s citizens say screw it

    And they seek short cuts to achieving their hopes and dreams
    Wading through dark and murky streams
    Disguising their misguided efforts under the schism
    Of the well meant derivatives of Patriotism

    Yes poet, many lives have been slain in the name of God.
    Many hearts and lives destroyed in the name of peace.
    I guess it will all stop when "we" as a people stop believing that it really is peace and God's will.

    Wonderful write poet! Hopefully your write and others like it, will get the ball rolling. Bless!
