Alienation ~ nonet


What is this lust for blood in debate,
this need for vile retribution,
love for self, and not for man?
Differences be damned.
Brotherhood is key.
That we should think
makes no

This nonet is my response to
Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday
#Poetry Challenge No. 123 #Synonyms Only
sense and lust for meaning and passion.

  1. So true, Ken, and well said.
    I was listening to an interview on NPR a few days ago (I missed who it was), but he pointed out that the majority of the people in the U.S. do not agree with the current GOP agenda. To know that the policies being enforced now are minority positions is both scary and comforting to me.
