Opening Volley

Besieging the great wall
takes what little patience might have been
wears it thin
and grinds it into dust
granting necessary fanaticism
to an ideology
that never made sense in the first place.

The hurling of insults
as an opening volley
is hard to digest
the tactic alienates the crowd
you’re trying to reach.
Unless of course
you only really care to comment
to those who share your own views.
You know
‘really get that agenda out there, man.’
