The Case Of The Boiling Frog

Allow me tell you about an experiment with a frog. Scientists placed a live frog in a large container of water. Then they put the container on a stove. Next, they slowly turned up the gas flame. The water heated so slowly that the frog didn’t notice until it was too late to jump out of the water that was nearing the boiling point. The frog could have escaped from the container had it not adapted to the hotter water.           – E. Allan Campbell, DeVry University

This darkness growing so familiar;
I can’t recall what came before

You can learn to live with anything/When it happens by degrees
.
I’ve seen talking heads shout back and forth/across a great divide
.
Against a map of red and blue/Points of view so cut and dried
.
When you look into the mirror/What kind of country do you see?
.
Where you can learn to live with anything
.
When it happens by degrees
