What If?

‘Big men’ come and swoop down upon us
like hawks diving down on cowed, helpless mice.

They come, whether we want them to or not,
like bad weather or other natural disasters.

What if ‘big men’ didn’t come,
staying away and left us free and unmolested?

What if, when ‘big men’ came, swooping down upon us;
expecting to take all they want (and more);

one mouse turned around, holding and aiming a rifle
and shot the hawk out of the sky?

What if?

I'd say, "Great Shot!"

Please e-mail me about a post you made here:

Perhaps Professor David Kaiser could not bear the worldview with which I wrote a few corrections about the Tea Party? Perhaps he could/would not answer my questions?

How can someone so educated be so ignorant of the history that is unfolding right around us?

Keep writing! Truth will be read, eventually.
