Maybe this period in history will ultimately
best serve to publicly expose the very
worst of the worst [so that we can easily
identify candidates for reeducation camp]

If this is not it then maybe the next
[extreme] pendulum swing will be the
last one [of my life] that finally lands us
in a more comfortable place for most

One can paint themself into corners or
one can be painted into corners maybe
offense balances defense [like in optical
illusions] catalyst and reaction confusion

Maybe this era will be remembered
as just bad plotting like when it was
all just a dream or having another baby
because the ratings [have started to dim]

What is maybe the most important lesson
[and measurable outcome] is the degree
to which individuals will or have changed
for the better or changed for the worse
