What I Mind

I do not mind that some people have more that others. I do mind that some people have too much while others have too little, or nothing. I do mind when some people have too much at the expense of others who have too little (certain fundamentalist preachers come to mind). I do mind that my government, which has “promote the general welfare” written into its original contract with its citizens, pretends it is honoring the contract with each privelege it gives to the few, taken from the many. Ironically,by denying the many, the few will eventually destroy themselves.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
