Walk On

The Champions Who Walked Among Us

Shock by Pat Garcia

the-silent-majority-a-group-of-faceless-peopleShock shook the earth.

At first, only tiny tremors,

Politicians had ignored them.

The media had made fun,

Expounding their ignorance.

But, the tremors became stronger.

What happened?

Where did we go wrong?

The ceiling is still in tact.

The glass didn’t shatter,

People can’t take a splitter as a souvenir,

As some did with the Berliner Wall in 1989.

What happened?

What went wrong?

Who can we blame?

For ignoring the cries of the Silent Majority.

Until December 9th, be safe.

Shalom aleichem,

  1. Thank you Pat.



  2. Another powerful poem, Pat. Ironically, Trump heard the silent majority – so they elected him. Very scary stuff.


  3. We may never know what went wrong. What I would like to know is what is going to happen. If this turns out good. I will be shocked and speechless. We can only prepare for the worst and hope for the best.


  4. tremors – we HAVE to pay heed and not ignore. Thank you Pat. Reminds me of Simone Weil: ‘Attention is the purest and rarest form of generosity’. I’m not sure that’s the exact quote but words to that effect. …


  5. Powerful poem and terrifying in its truth. God help us all.

    Love, Micki
