For the good of the Bird

Contributed by Redwest802 on Tuesday, 14th November 2017 @ 07:55:47 PM in AEST
Topic: political

Left nor right, neither, am I,
Both wings, serve the same bird,
So the bird can fly high.

As the wing do both grow,
And both, stronger they become.
Both the same strength, both work as one.

The bird will fly high,
Be the majesty of the sky,
And soar to the heavens above.

But if nature goes wrong,
If she makes one wing strong.
The bird, flies in circle/'/s, can/'/t wander.

If the strong wing try/'/s,
And defeats the other side,
The bird cannot fly, upon yonder.

It will fall out of the sky,
And nature will not deny,
The bird will crashÖ.and die, Now Ponder.

What it is, I Say.
These wings are important, must stay.
Attacking each other, It is not the right way.

It defeats all Purpose,
And this must be avoided,
Avoided, to save the day.

Both wings Must work,
Together we must fly.
The left and right wings,
of our government, please try......

Exactly. Well said and wrote. I am sick of the BS. we have here in DC. The fat cats only care about their interests and not ours. Zero unity on both sides.

We are in a constant state of limbo. No resolution forthcoming.

yes, for the good of the bird. I like that very much!
I guess we might see ourselves sort of like a group of industrious crow. Our dominion depends upon our collective survival, and not the one before the other.
For the crow math is seen differently, tell me why I might learn a new trick, would learning a new trick destroy
the organic, would the organic taken as the only goal,
destroy the need to invent a new trick.
Could we find a way to listen to each other using symbolic gesturing, teach each and every bird how to fish, or dig for worm, or could a squirrel learn not to eat our young, and if so...
would we not need to rip a random squirrel/'/s head off from the neck from time to time
even crow find squirrels truly fascinating being so brave as they are weaving in and out of heavy traffic
AS THOUGH THEY ARE Immortals, which clearly, they are not, so much...

So much truth in this. Both sides are constantly opposed and nothing gets done. I enjoyed this piece very much.
