NaPoWriMo Day 1

Lies are political
Truth is political

The term “political” is a prisoner
of the English language.

A political prisoner is one
usually detained for speaking

or possibly throwing something
or waving a flag or finger.

The terms “lies” and “truth”
are held as evidence

that words can create a thing.
A flag or finger can be a lie.

A prisoner can be a truth.
I prefer the term “fact”.

When I tell what I think is
truth, am I then political?

If I lie, or make up something,
is that political, or creative?

The meaninglessness of
pejorative words, of little

nuggets of “wisdom”, is why
I urge we “take no prisoners”,

especially political ones.
