It Happened Back in the Day*

The author wrote, “…habituation, confusion,
distraction, self-interest, fear, rationalization,
and a sense of personal powerlessness make
terrible things possible.”

Seen any of those things around the USA?
Just look around the neighborhood;
how hard is it for you to be understood?
Those all happened in Germany back in the day.

Have you heard, “I like my routine;
I’m confused; I continually watch Fox on TV —
distracted, it helps keep me,
but what is this virus unseen?

“I have to trust the leader
to keep me safe from the hoax;
seriously, this isn’t a joke.
Enemies brown and black are breeders.

We have to stop them in their tracks
before they mount violent attacks.”

*quote by Cass Sunstein, The New York Review of Books
