Don’t Read the Comments

I have an opinion, and a way to get it out there
…….I can share it, so I will
What’s an “informed opinion?” I don’t care — this one is mine
…….And that’s what matters
I see that you have an opinion as well, your own point of view
…….Even though it’s flawed
As easily as I can share my opinion, I could do some reading
…….That doesn’t matter
I have no time for nuance, as there are other battles to be fought
…….I have an opinion
You’ll try to scroll on by, but you’ll probably see it, this opinion of mine
…….I can share it, so I will

  1. Fun! I’m glad it’s not autobiographical. I’m sure you also didn’t have me in mind when you wrote it, but I must say sometimes I’m tempted to think this:
    “I see that you have an opinion as well, your own point of view
    …….Even though it’s flawed”
    It made me laugh and hopefully learn!

  2. “this one is mine”, indeed that’s what so many say! You’ve made me wonder if some one thing or many things inspired this! It’s an argument in itself, hope you might be able to use it sometime!

  3. It’s great that everyone now has a way to send opinions out into the world. And also…not so great! Ruth, thereisnosuchthingasagodforsakentown.blogspot.com
