Vitriol, By Brian37

Hurled thus
Such a word
From all spectrums
Of political ilk

To the other
All accuse hate
Yet all of us
Like to bitch

They do
We do
Why do humans
Think that will change?

To be merely offended
Is not the same
To lose a limb
Or lose your life

Most vehemently
Voltaire once said
He would defend
Your right to speak

Even if
That from your mouth
Was of such
He did abhor

Our species
Will never ever find
Common dogma
Or common tradition

But when all feel
The need to express
That off dissent
All will do so

The paper lion
We all like to bitch
And none like to die

"We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and nonbelievers."Obama
