until they fall down…

cite no more prayers
for war’s dying children but
trumpet your anger
into the ears of warlords
bring down greed’s jericho walls

 

a question of burial rites…

pastors
of
god’s new light
support
mr
trump
and
his
disciple senators
his disciples
are
capturing people
taking
them
to the church
of
blind obedience
and
massacring them
during
animated religious rituals
in
the senate
their dismembered bodies
can be found
along
the border
on
battlefields
on
city streets
or
in
veterans’ hospitals
though
some
concerned citizens
have become
alarmed
the blood
still flows unabated
so far
the only shields offered
have been words
like these
that have yet
to
stop one child
from
dying
with no parent
to
ease their passing

 

thugs trump and other butchers…

no resolutions
just prayers for survival
god save the children

 

titillating tithing…

pulpit politicos
those
practicing pharisees
promote protecting
the unborn child
but
those already born
are forgotten
once outside
the hospital doors
and as for
their mothers
who were once
called
sacred vessels
of
god
now are
unwed whores
shunned from
those sacred doors
adorned with
golden images
representing
your heavenly reward
redeemable
if
and
only if
you contribute
funds
to be used
at
the discretion
of
god’s
terrestrial representatives
for
indiscretions
representatives
whose sermons
give
a new meaning
to
the golden fleece
