dear ms b-has times changed

we sure enjoyed seeing you turn over
also we liked the pictures of your dad holding you
right beside it was a picture of me holding your dad
when he was your age

i thought about that a lot
how far we have come since i held your dad like he
is holding you
well its seems on some things we have changed some
not for the good

Image result for obamacare
the supreme court may wipe out the only attempt to
provide healthcare for its citizens
we are an embarrassment to the industrial countries
when it comes to health care

Image result for confederate flag
we are debating whether to fly a flag over a state capitol
a flag that yes i agree belongs in a museum
now when i was younger i embraced that flag
seeing it as a symbol of the times
a sign of rebellion against the status quo
a rebel against the war discrimination excessive police
force against minor infractions and people of color

well i was wrong about that flag from my deep south
it is in 2015 is a symbol of racism
seen offensive by a large section of our population
a symbol of their placement into slavery
i understand what it may mean to my ancestors
its time has come to put it to rest
in a museum
then let history sort this out
history always tells the truth

Image result for same sex marriage
the supreme court will rule on same sex marriage
same sex couples have been around for years
ive known them as have all of us all our lives
its time to rule that its all legal
then we move on

im sure your generation will look back on all this
what was all that uproar about anyway
its about just doing the right thing for people
many of whom are your friends neighbors fellow employees
and relatives

lets just move on and do whats right

now ms b we have a lot of hope for your generation
to do the right thing for society
we are leaving things well many things not in very good
like our earth our climate our political system our economy
lots of social issues

i hope yours is the one that can fix all that

get some teeth and start crawling

  1. Great article. I remember as a teenage and participating in the rebellious years the confederate flag was a symbol of that age. Now it is a symbol of hate, murder... Time for it to come down. Good that Walmart, Amazon and others are taking confederate flag associated merchandise off the shelves.
