Whatever Happened to Honest Debate

Honest debate
used to be
making points
to substantiate my perspective,
then listening as you argue yours.

debate feels more like war –
attack with more deadly words
and weapons of past mistakes
until points disappear
and all that is left behind
are skeletons of personalities
picked over by the ever-present media
who hang them for all to see
forever naked in the public square
devoid of any flesh of opinion.
