DEFUSING THE WHY

DEFUSING THE WHY

A Poem by Willys Watson

DEFUSING THE WHY

As applied experience knows,

when freedom is endangered the why
is sometimes less important than the
where or the always ominous when.

The when can calculate every
potentially evasive path.
Where over-rides the misfortune
of becoming easy targets.

The why is the motivation
of greed, religious fanatics
and leaders with grand illusions:

each abusing their forced power. 

Fate dictates the avoiding of the
age old, unjustified Ostrich myth
so that faith and knowledge smoothly merge.
          
Still, reaching your new level eight
while playing your cute game boy toy
does not translate well to real life,
nor maintain our freedom’s safeguards: 

awareness towards democracy’s
foes or a leader’s countless lies
or empowering of the fringe.

True freedom requires diligence.

Thank you. I write serious and I write silly and this is one of the more serious verse.
