Overwhelmed to Speechlessness

What is wrong with the world? Conflict and clashes everywhere. Dry land turned to raging torrents in one part of the world, no rain falls on dust bowls in other parts of the world. Even the animals no longer behave as they once did. They, too, are adapting to the new state of things.

Ebola. Abuse. Yet another crime drama presented for our entertainment. Terrorism. Air strikes. Bibi is a schnook. Children who think they’re grown. $800 for a phone. Homeless vets. Starbucks salute. Mindlessness, disconnection, indifference, fear.

Why did the President win a Nobel? Flood Wall Street. Economy still stagnant. Permanent, perpetual war with enemies who were once frenemies and in our employ.

Money in politics. Diminution of civil and human rights. Police brutality. Continuation of excess death. Desperation.

And the band plays on.
