The Liberal Mind Running

The Liberal Mind Running

 

The liberal mind doesn’t hurdle over its own prejudices

And grab onto the pockets of possibilities.

It hates the other runners.

It takes credit for everything that is good

And doesn’t realize that it is bad.

It pretends that it is happy

But grabs the starter’s pistol and shoots himself

In the head.

It is trapped in its good intentions

While rushing through its hatred to hell.

It calls everyone else bigots and doesn’t realize

That the accusation is the self-reflection,

The assumption,

The guilty trying to wash its own hands of it.

When the liberal calls you a fascist he does it with a salute

And a goose step.

Not a good bone in his body except the wish bone

Of being better than his competition.
