It appears that crude is the new civil,

a dumbing-down, if you will.

 

A sad reality of these polarized days,

an all-too-true indictment of our new political ways.

 

Intelligent debate, replaced by the crude rant,

a political direction given a hate-filled slant.

 

A personal hatred of the other side,

who happen to be on the flip side of the divide.

 

Civil is so yesterday, a thing of the past,

a relic built to entertain, but hopefully, it won't last.

 

Says more about society that the President,

our common sense seem to have got up and went.

 

Some of us see nothing wrong with electing this caveman

to represent us--why, I'll never understand.

 

That they can look this moral disaster every day on T. V.

and not be bothered is a complete mystery to me.
