Deep Breath (Day 19)

(NaPoWriMo continues, but the news of the day deterred me from doing their prompt, which was light and fun.)

Deep Breath

Not everybody agrees on all issues and
that’s just fine, no big deal because
democracy requires impassioned debate
and while argument should be based
on reason or logic or reality
not everyone understands those concepts
or understands them the same way so
don’t get too bent out of shape when
people start making assertions
based on ignorance, prejudice, and fear
since most people never move beyond
a very self-protective stage
in their psychological development and
they’re doing their best to deal with
a hostile and complex world using
their black-and-white filters so
maybe you should just let it go and
never mention politics at work again.
