Eric Alder's Monday Photo Prompt: 5-29-2012 The Not So Comfy Chair

You might think you are above us
But you aren't
Your comfy chair isn't a pedestal
It's a target.
Duck.
~~~~~~~~
I am not sure who this statue is- nor where it is.
But it triggered a visceral response in me.
I don't really know how our politicians became
so de-railed in respecting their fellow citizens,
but I sure as hell am sick of it.
And when I wrote "Duck" I wasn't referring
to bullets, but more preferably some rotten tomatoes.
This "Era of Greed" has gone on long enough.
