Block traffic, burn buildings,
angry speeches,
perverted purpose —
focus on a symptom, ignore the cause.


A new prompt site for me with a call for a form
I really like; a naani. Check it out, give it a try.

  1. I like this – that last line so right on.

  2. Yes! Exactly….and your title speaks to the problem so well….our focus is so misguided. Treating symptoms is never going to fix the cause of the problems. Well written and poignant!

  3. True Mark, we often forget to focus on symptom. Great lines

  4. Really well done … too often we focus on symptoms and ignore the causes! Thanks for participating this week! Bastet

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
