Mocking All The Rhetoric

Freelancing through old age quotes.
In demographics posed.
Never random although this told.
Sold to sell,
As to how the majority of a society feels.
Done to reveal and known very well.

In the woodwork.
They are.
As if anointed carpenter ants.
Chewing up foundations from within.
People who advocate,
Division, bigotry and their version of racism.
With an abusing to label immigrants,
As the cause and reason why...
Democracy once cherished,
Is on a downhill slide.
Fast and away from a fading quality of life.

Nonstopping is the mocking of the rhetoric.

If it had not been,
For the native American born Indians.
And so called 'immigrants'.
Or references made of them being 'refugees'.
Corrupted thieves, liars who fraud to deceive,
Would not exist.
To perceive them to be,
Wholesome peacemakers.
Innocent of evil misdeeds.

If it had not been,
For the native American born Indians.
Assisted by and with the various skills,
The Chinese, Africans shared with goodwill.
Those who arrived on these shores,
Knowing nothing more but theft.
Conflict, war and putting others to death.
This today to observe and witness,
Could or would not around anyone exist.

This madness addressed as is these days,
To hear the craze of it fictional.
And repeatedly deceiving truth not to be.
By the ones claiming themselves of having,
Superior mentalities!?
As of yet,
Has not been officially verified.

The opposite...
Is an everyday occurrence to witness.
Observed 24/7.
As if...
Those creating the conflicts and chaos,
Are proud to have established the havoc!
