It is because it reflects our society…..
A couple of favorite poems came to mind from when I was in Vietnam during the Vietnam War and I have adapted them here. The originals go like this:
We the Unwilling
We have done so much,
for so long,
with so little,
we are now qualified to do anything
The newly adapted version which reflects our current times.
We the Uninformed
We, the uninformed,
led by the unscrupulous,
are doing the unreasonable
for the unforgivable.
The image is in keeping with the sacrifice of those who served. The poem is a reflection of the pain and anger.
Why doesn’t government work? Because she is reflecting who we are and not what she is.
