"Mind Games"

A Poem by L.C. Jarrette
"

Pride comes before destruction

"


Let the mind games begin...

Turning facts into fallacies, urgh! What a mule

Good deeds? With evil grins

Ousting an honest man, and condemning his sins?

Bright minds unbecoming, using the press as a tool

Deceiving the masses, presuming we are fools

And yet you still go on, thinking you can win

Well then my friend,

Bring it on!

And let the mind games begin.

An interesting observation on the human condition and the subterfuge often used in propaganda offered up as absolute truth. But as the American patriot Thomas Paine once said, "The sun does not need a sign to distinguish him from the darkness." Here's to always believing in the light.

Very nicely captured, which is probably unfortunate on yourself, as it is written from the perspective of experience.
It is all the more sad for the knowledge that these games are played with people we most likely once liked/ loved.
With friends like these....

Ego is one of the least attractive qualities in a human being and sooner than later it comes back to haunt. They only have one concern and that is themselves no matter how they spin it. Daily grins trapping genuine smiles. I'm digging this for sure. Great job!

thank you very much traci...
Once again, you've written a piece that can be interpreted several ways -- in particular, this could describe the sad political climate in so many countries around the world, these days. I try to remember the lesson in your message, about pride coming before a fall! Honest, straightforward writing here! (((HUGS)))
