Bull’s Eye

information darts and bullets
whizz by unsuspecting bystanders
from every direction
some barely noticed
others strike an emotion
grab attention

emotional triage swiftly responds
prioritizing these cultural missiles

headlines
manipulate reality

shrapnel

when did we become the dart board
with a bull’s eye on our backs

    As I sit here in the Middle East with CNN on my TV and the new strikes on ISIS in Syria being reported, this poem is very timely!
