Rory’s Story Cubes Mini-Story #20

I was in a poetry mood today, apparently, so not exactly a mini-story. If you disagree with the sentiments expressed, my request is you keep the comments civil. Thanks.

The bees are dying but
We build a wall between science and truth,
Tear down the wall between church and state.
In case you’re wondering
Broken bones aren’t healed by
Prayer
But by science.

Politicians become actors in plays
Celebrating ignorance, with acts of intolerance
Encouraged, applauded, and rewarded.
In case you’re wondering
Human beings aren’t ruled by
Hate
But by amity.

In case you’re wondering.
