Choice by IC Imagination
Somewhere along the way we
were shown boundaries:
blue states here
over there reds,
and some got it into their heads
that signposts pointing left
and others pointing right
would help them hold tight
to America's true path, would m o v e
them along to the best destination,
or toward destiny
and if their side prevails--hence
only then could they rejoice.
But were the boundaries and
the signposts ever truly their choice?
Are they really m o v e r s-and-shakers?
Or did values turn the people into
joe-and-jane milquetoast & jam
up the center to spread out
