Scenic Route

I don't really take people seriously
when they talk about building walls
A wall exists
or it doesn't
or it takes a long time to build it
The in-between
is time-management
and convincing people
they will never ever want
what is on the other side of it
which is, if we are being honest
But when people get on that live wire
and talk about tearing down bridges
(I would much rather tear down walls)
the hairs on the back of my neck
stand erect and I am like
I need a blueprint
Tell me exactly what will happen next
Tell me what you plan to build instead
because destruction happens in an instant
and I am only okay with that
if what is underneath
is better because it is tried and true
or if what is new is fool-proof
