It's not political, yet it is. Colourized smoke bombs, have clouded our judgment.

Today black is in
Wearing blue a sin
Having a choice
Is our voice
Silenced by oppression
A political obsession

Which side, your side?
How long can you hide?
Hiding your shade of red
Have they gotten in you head?
Their control indirect
Unable to disconnect
Like in the matrix
There is only one fix

Years living out of the way
Waiting for such a day
Another Philip K. Dick, I be
Though, I hardly write any fantasy
Mirrors turned yet unable to see
It's you not me, your enemy

Colours do matter , that's why it's better to use flower bombs then everyone is happy.
There is no denying , can't please everyone so no point in hiding in your wardrobe might as well come out and eat the flowers ....!!!!!!

Yep, but I missed out on my Hawaiian shirt this year. Too many May think I am against blacks. My wee story is about how entangled China is within America. Nobody notices it, but they control a lot of data, and use it against us in how we react and think. They know us better than our selves. Right now our political system is comprised, by our reactions to bad information. We have heavily invested into China. While China wears sheep's clothing. Democrats kiss China's bum, just look at the reactions to Trump against WHO. Huawei is just the tip of the iceberg for the western world. Our economy from state level to national governent, and private investments, are tied into China. So point fingers at who ever you think has been in ties with China, it will bounce back to you, in some form. Like Japan in the 80s, we have sold out to China since 2000. That's why all the so called American tech companys hate Trump. Just how do you think so many start ups get millions so fast. American made is Chinese owned. It's mind boggling how much US money is bled off to Asia and China. Democrats say we need more money... just ask China for it back. Cancel your debts to China, and you will make American workers happy.

I agree with your my mom has said..." What if we can't pay them back "...the idea of borrowing money from a sworn enemy is beyond me.
