A lie is a lie
Even when told over again
And over again.
I was thinking about this during these Orwellian times when a character assassination has taken a life of its own during the election season. Hillary is about as crooked as a rod. It seems we are holding her to a higher standard and maybe this is because she is a woman and the first woman to become a nominee of a major party. I get it. We dream of the first female president should be a flawless diamond to cut through the glass ceiling. But sometimes glass ceilings are shattered in other ways. We don’t need a fantasy jewel, we need a shovel who has been in the soil for 30 years and getting dirty.
On a side note, I am awfully glad I took this experiment of writing a poem a day during an election year!!!
