. . . the term “gaslighting”

used so much these days by the talking TV heads

is derived from the stage play and movie “Gaslight”

way back in the 1930s.

In which an abusive husband

manipulates the gas lights bright and dim

while telling his wife she’s just imagining it

and that she’s losing her mind.

It’s become a term for blaming you

for what I’m doing and

everything is all your fault.
