second debate

It’s not that they’re
bad
guys

It’s not that they’re
corrupt

or evil

or even
greedy

The problem is
they’re all
wrong
or at least
70% wrong

but they clutch
their words
their personas
their caricatures

they grapple the
party line
and good intentions

mountaineers
freshman rock-climbers
clamoring for a hold

They’re so easy to
hate
and to
love
to hate

It’s not because some have
the right opinion
and the others
don’t

not because some
care
and the others
don’t
(of course they all do)

not even because
they’re bad
guys

they’re easy to hate
simply
because
they’re all wrong.
