It’s not so difficult to believe Manti Te'o.
For the last four years I thought Congress
might come to a meaningful bipartisan
decision, but I was duped. I trusted
the banks with my home, the stock market
with my retirement, the doctors and
insurance companies with my health,
but I presumed too much. I was so sure
that terrorists lived abroad, were denied
access to our theaters, malls, and schools.
Of course I’m gullible, but there’s so much
I want to believe, even if I can’t see it.
Talk to me with a tender voice, tell me
the next four years will be better.
