Moving to Mexico: Chapter 28

America, the Broken. Are We Truly Lost?

Many of you
…and I
Are leaving.

See you there.

Headlines.
Shock, murder and crime.
If it bleeds, it leads.  

Fear-based news grabs you and shakes you
trying to convince you
listening to their story will somehow
reduce your fear.
It’s a formula that works.

But now
There is a new scheme.
The soap opera government show.

How did this become so important?
How did they get us to choose sides?
Blue vs. Red.
Left vs. Right
Really? Are we that stupid?
Why not just the white hats vs. the black hats?
Dodgers vs. the Giants?
Batman vs. The Joker?

It’s all a con.

CNN says…
Donald Trump is the devil
sent to burn the world to ashes.
Personal gain
Pervert
Liar
We are justified in our cause so all actions and words are allowed.
Keep watching CNN.

Fox News says…
The left is a bunch of violent ideologues.
They want your every dollar.
Cradle to Grave
Control you, own you.
They will tax you to death.
Donald Trump is the angry public’s middle-finger message to government.
Keep watching Fox News.

Neither is correct.
Both are ideologically handcuffed.
Obtuse mental blockade
keeping both sides from accomplishing anything.
Our attention is being grabbed
Our focus drawn away
From the real game at play.

Our system is completely broken.
Our nation is hopelessly split.
Brother hates brother.
I do not see a way out of this.  

A second civil war in America?
We are so intertwined.
So many now.
Get back in lines?
Can we again
choose sides
and shoot each other
empty fields
“the whites of their eyes”
Once rallied us.
Such divides.

More likely our second civil war
Will be small and quick.
Chaotic, violent, scary.
quickly flattened
boots of our own military.  

America is not emerging
Ongoing political rift
Divorce.
Dissolution.
Our experiment did not work.
Major changes loom.
Will we break up our nation?
If we do not repair the division we now face
2020 could be the last time we try.

Texas wants to secede.
California may split into parts.
Colorado became New York.
New York is from Mars.
What happened to the United States?
Maybe this was a bad idea.

We just grew to be too damn big.
Too many of us.
From too many different places.
No homogeneous link or tie.
330 million reigned by one man?
Or even a group of similar crooks.
No wonder they all lie.
We get what we allow.
We deserve what we get.
Time and time again
We vote these assholes in and
They vote themselves raises
Lifetime pensions
Health insurance
And they all live behind big, strong
WALLS
Don’t they?
Walls we cannot climb.
Walls that protect them
From us.
Walls we paid for.
Foolish governed.
Crafty governors.

America is fractured.
Nothing unifies us.
Flags, anthems and Eagles
Nothing without engagement.
Not a marriage or family.
A flag of convenience.
America has become more a desired club
Than a beloved nation.
Our country has become a game
Winners and losers
Matter little or not at all
When you have no stake in the game
You’re a passive observer
A bandwagon fan
Jumped on board a fast moving train
Took it for a ride
Didn’t pay
Didn’t care
And when the train ran out of fuel
You went back to walking
Just like you were before
Not caring
Just a passenger on a rider to wherever.

You and I did not care enough
to make the changes
needed to fix our home.
So now, many of you
…and I
Are leaving.

See you there.
