April 18: Deafening

by allisonkujiraoka

A cacophony of a thousand thousand voices,

each with its own megaphone.

A forum with a quorum of one

on a soapbox.

Vox populi vox Dei?

It elbows and shouts its way

into the fray.

Once, a voice of one called out in the wilderness,
but now, the din nudges us towards deafness.
