a sudden loss of cabin pressure…

a sudden loss of cabin pressure

what shall we place
on
america’s gravestone
here lies
a nation
aborted
by
its greed
and
intolerance
of
its
own history
or
an unborn promise
made
with its fingers crossed
concealed
behind
a back of hate
and
prejudice
all
the while
scripting words
constituting
a justification
for
continuation
of
an oligarchy
but
with
more than
one
king
a feudal state
with
all the trappings
of
the middle ages

 

 

nothing to write home about…

nothing to write home about

this path
of
freedom
is strewn
with
shards of hate
a path
not chosen
walking barefoot
into the night
pain
with
each step made
they say
i should be 
grateful
that i’m
permitted
to walk

state terrorism…

terrorist state

go ahead
sort
through
the array
of
definitions
of
a terrorist state
make
notes
if
you like
but
if you’re honest
your
findings
will
include
so-called
democracies
that
have had
apartheid processes
in
place
for
quite some time
nations
more
than willing
to
arrest
and
murder
their own citizens
to
maintain
political power
oh
the flags
may be different
but
the purposes
are
the same
and
the bodies
in
graves
are silenced
in
the same
way
