Hello to you Susan Larson
I read your Political Senryu and I wonder if there are any open- mined politicians that actually speak the truth.

    Probably not! I think it goes with the personality type. Thank you for the review.

Very funny Susan. It's ironic isn't it that most of the people who say that they are tolerant are the ones who will go into hysterics if you present an opinion that contradicts there's? Well done especially since most politicians live by this credo.

So true. Nobody will agree with everybody all the time, but at least let us all be civil to each other without fear of violence or property damage. We're not cookie cutter people. Marilyn

    Thank you. It's the nastiness that I can't stand. I wonder if high schools still have debate teams where students are required to be civil.

Hello Susan,

This one made me laugh and I thank you for that. In my many years on this earth, you have to have a very strong mind in order to keep an open mind in this world we live in today.

Have a great weekend...Bill

    Thank you. I Like the way you put that. Your mind has to be strong to put up with the vicious opposition.

Hi Susan, well written, amusing senryu. I enjoyed the read and your line three made my chuckle. Good sense of humour also one of your attributes. Good luck in the contest. Warm regards Dorothy x

Just love this, political speeches tend to be like this, sounding very gracious but turn very quickly when on doesn't agree with them. A very witty, very thoughtful and perceptive post, well done Susan, blessings, Roy

This senryu does an excellent job at being political without actually delving into politics (how very political of you). I appreciate that is conveys such a strong point about the way that both sides can be. Well done!

Dear Mystery Poet,

This senryu has a good moment of enlightenment for me :) Gotta love those that enjoy the sound of their own voice when they get to showing that they know it all. I tend to listen to folks talking about politics and not participate in sharing opinions.

Best wishes in the contest.

Joy xx

    Thank you. I tend to do the same. I have a close friend whose politics are as far from mine as can be. But when we just sit around and talk about "stuff" we seem to agree on about everything.

You make an excellent point, in the theme of politics, and in general, too. A senryu is a good way to get across a message in short order. Your notes are thoughtful, as well. I like your phrase, "the echo of their own thoughts." I like the title. It asks a simple, yet complex question of all of us. Why can't we? Great question. Thanks for sharing an 'open-minded' poem.
Take care, Jesse
