I don’t, much, get into current events with my work. I don’t get political or up in arms, often. But sometimes things need to be brought up, even in a minimalist way. That’s what this week’s poem is. Just a glimpse at a larger issue. Just a few lines touching on a much larger problem that could be (and has been) discussed for many years…and still not much change.
This week hasn’t been too different than other weeks in recent years, and that’s one of the things to take away from it. People died this week. More people than we heard about. But, as I said, it’s not that different than last week, or the week before that. Should this be the new norm?
