The Frozen in Mind
(The Donkeys vs. the Elephants)
—inspired by Becky Tuch, a donkey

by G. Tod Slone

It seems we’ve reached a very sad point
in this country,
purported model of democracy
—you know, free speech and vigorous debate.

Everything seems reduced to black or white
where thought remains bounded
in the box of ideology

and nothing exterior tolerated, let alone considered,
no matter how reasonable
—no discussion needed, wanted, heeded, or dared.
