Demonstrating The Penetrating Of...A What?

We have arrived,
Into a new Era of fiction.
Animated to celebrate and praise,
For its realism.
Solidifying to validate,
A worshipping in erected statues.
Along with other idols that symbolizes,
Images to distort...
Greatness for what it is.
And not faked to create it.
On a regular basis.
To imitate the face of power.

Not a bomb to drop or a gun to shoot it,
Displays a face to recognize...
Its ethnic origin.
Nor has death when death comes,
Seem to discriminate between races.
Those seeking power,
Will have it to believe...
Such ignorance to obtain it is envied!

Anyone today,
Feeling threatened by the presence...
Of truth and its ethnic diversity?
Have never found themselves,
Grounded to reality.
Few seem to question or fear,
A near and clear observation.
That has left,
Vacant heads emptied...
Of common sense.
And minds to use.
Long gone.
To have lost to a pretentiousness!
A pretentiousness beyond recovery.

'Everywhere it can be witnessed to see,
More of these demonstrations.
To defend against what?
How the Sun rises and where it sets?'

And them of those of the others,
Are demonstrating against...
One's color of skin.
Brain size and thought process.
The ones shouting to yell the loudest,
Can be seen flocking to beaches.
To get their skins as dark as possible.
Those already dark,
Sit under huge umbrellas.
Lathering themselves...
With Sun tan lotion.

'Stop exaggerating.
Not even in the movies,
Are those scenes re-created.'

And little what is seen,
On TV or MOVIE screens is based on truth!

What is being penetrated,
With a demonstration to stay that way?
Of a 'what' and to who,
Is benefitting?
It's all crazy to me!'

And that is the benefit,
Of being a patriotic and native born...
Citizen of The United States of America!
Nothing is meant to make sense.
And that benefit...
We all seem to defend!
