Projection

If you hear someone shout “Corruption,”
look for that someone’s corruption.
If you hear someone shout, “Treason,”
look for that someone’s treason.
If you hear someone shout, “Spy,”
look for that someone’s spying.
If you hear someone call others “names,”
look at that someone calling the names.
If you hear someone shout “Rude,”
look for that someone’s rudeness.
If you hear someone shout “Violence,”
look for that someone’s advocacy of violence.
If you hear someone brag about his or her “This and That,”
look elsewhere for all the this and that.
If you see someone pointing a finger,
look for the fingers pointing back at that someone.
If you hear someone say he or she will “Drain the Swamp,”
look for the gators and snakes in that someone’s swamp.
We hear and see all this and more every day.
We see the worst of ourselves in that someone.
We need to be careful not to project just like that someone
does all day.
