seeing comparisons…

wrapped in a martyrs flag

created ghettos
and oppressive laws
dehumanizing
all aspects of life
suffocating others to death

 

 

​hyena…

crouching
low
to the earth
embracing
the devil’s hearthstone
the beast
sought
its prey
as
black smoke
spiraled
like
a snake
towards
where
angels
are said
to reside
no doubt
a gated community
shrouded
in biblical history
a history
that
lets
a sniper’s bullet
steal
a child’s life
