Opposites Attract Challenge #11

Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith has give us a new set of words;

 

Today’s word:
glorify

Antonyms:
abase
degrade
demean
humble
humiliate

 

 

Why would we glorify something that we should abase

The faults of our collective conscience

Which we should shun and abhor,

Are treated as nothing to frown upon

Or are even exalted and praised because

the shame has been taken out of

Committing sin, felony or wrong doing

Why the criminals are roaming free

And the virtuous are being blamed

Is this the new age of liberal thinking

That says the wrong is right and the

Righteous are in the wrong?

  1. There is a lot of truth and wisdom in your words, Sadje. A very nice and eloquent poem. By the way, as I said before in Kenza’s blog, there is a much better writer than me, whom I strongly recommend you and all your followers. It is my friend Mario Savioni. His novel “Pickles and Tarts” (very short chapters, easy to read), is a story where 54-year-old Frank has been selected by 19-year-old Nicole through a dating site. Frank looks at Nicole’s photos on the site and is attracted to her beauty. Nicole tells him she has a boyfriend and is not interested in a romantic relationship. She adds: “It’s fun to talk to different people sometimes.” It is a lovely story of illusion-delusion, dream-reality, non-conformist with the Capitalist system, reflective on love, sex and human relationships in today’s world. It is profound and highly intriguing: https://savioni.wordpress.com/2019/03/08/pickles-and-tarts-chapter-9/
