Whisper Campaigns ... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

   Whisper Campaigns

Censors everywhere
are erasing Palestine
elevating the insane
eliminating the rational
the compassionate
Golden Rule stuff
that might free the people
from the conflict itself.

Censors everywhere
lurking in search engines
and news rooms
and lists

Censors everywhere
pushing peace and justice
and negotiations away

Whisper campaigns
crippling meritocracy
and the market place of ideas

Censors everywhere
deleting dignity

... & civilization itself.
