just another peoria street riot…

just another peoria street riot

embers of misunderstanding
by moral entrepreneurs’
righteous religious rhetoric
have transubstantiated
watery lies
the bloodied flesh
of an innocent
a repeated scene
crowds of people gather
along society’s street
to commune on history’s
stale wafers
of ignorance
ala’s revellers
by hate and fear
partake in the celebration
stone throwing rituals
as old
as man’s incapacity
to show tolerance
for that which
he cannot comprehend
and so
the darkness
remains upon the deep
the earth
is without form
