Monday’s Poem: Consensus Reality?

With the Spring Equinox coming this week my mind is on balance. I selected this poem for eqinox-Monday in a wistful recall of what once was “fair and balanced”!

Consensus Reality?

Perception is reality.
Mine or yours?
Consensus seems quite thin
These days.
Who’s right, who’s up, who’s in?

Adjustment is needed now.
Ours or theirs?
Who’s ready to give in
These days?
Not us, not them, no win.

Balance seems a thing long gone;
Fairness need not apply.
Maat is sorely stressed
These days.
Consensus fails the test!
