president punishes opponents…

animated corpse
like a scene from the last circus
revenge is taken

 

just a matter of time…

after all
the campaign promises
are made
and
dollars have
exchanged hands
then
we will bury
the
dead
after they
who have been vilified
at walls
for
childish hopes
of freedom
then
we will bury
the
dead
after your
sons and daughters are lost
in wars
that
buy the gifts
for the rich
then
we will bury
the
dead
after earth
expels a toxic breath
burning
the
lungs of all
saving none
then
we will bury
the
dead
after you
are homeless in your own land
begging
to
protect your rights
and family
then
we will bury
the
dead
tho after
nightmare awakenings
you’ll see
that
one new grave
is for you
then
we will bury
the
dead

 

history repeats….

spirits make
another
silent march
pass
the living
whispering
warnings
as they stare
into
empty eyes
eyes
that cannot see
the dangers
of
hate
and
greed
or
how denial
of
inhumanity
turns the earth
into
graves
graves for
children
graves for
the poor
graves for
the weak
graves for
those
different
and soon
graves
for
the blind
who will then
join
the march
with closed eyes
that
see

 

judgmentalism…

if you truly knew
the details of our history
you would realize
claims of being civilized
by us are but subterfuge
