“Woke”

I’ve spoken out against the so called “woke” before

Explaining & clarifying my position

at this point has become a chore

There are two different common usages of the word

I’ve heard, especially lately

One is being aware and concerned w/genuine

troubling issues in society

as I’ve mentioned THAT’S fine by me

but another involves whining, lunacy,

and pushing and pandering to a victimhood mentality

and THAT’S the one I’ll keep challenging, unapologetically

The 21st Century “Woke”

In today’s crazy culture it seems

People always look for reasons

to cry & scream

If you take a stand & call it out

They get bent out of shape

& continue to pout

If you ask for sanity to prevail

They want you censored & canceled

without recourse or “bail

Never met a whinier set of folks

than the 21st Century “woke”
