#FOWC, Politics

Well … Is it or isn’t it?

My post today turned out to be a “Happy Accident” since it begins with the prompt word and ends with the prompt word, something that happened quite by accident. Thanks, FOWC for the word.

Semantics or meanings of words can be exciting these days, mainly when one listens to the media; i.e.  take the word “fact.”

A fact should be stubborn. Stubborn because a “Fact” is checked, tested and proven, or it wouldn’t be a FACT. However these days in politics, facts become noise as in echos — fantasies for others, as in fiction! Furthermore through the power of semantics, “facts” the word; in the mind of the obstinate soon become conspiracies.

Perhaps the problem with politics these days; is simply the nomenclature! The “genius” of those who continue adding diversity to definitions not to develop them but to change the language for their agenda.

The never-ending doings of semantics.

My First Political Limerick

Fandango does it again, the perfect prompt for my LIMERICK!

Coming Soon May 12!

Observed annually on May 12, National Limerick Day celebrates the birthday of English artist, illustrator, author and poet Edward Lear (May 12, 1812 – Jan. 29, 1888). Lear is known mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry, prose, and limericks.
Anyway, rules to remember besides being silly are, it’s five lines long
The first two lines rhyme with each other and with the fifth line
The third and fourth lines also rhyme
Limericks are also supposed to have a certain rhythm.

There was once an election!
And LEFT had their selection,
Surprise, anyway!
Which wrought the hearsay.
The upshot — insurrection!

 (A Limerick)  It’s supposed to be nonsense, ANYWAY like the politics and media of today!
