Kids in Cages

There are no words,
Heavenly or Earthly
That can justify
The inhumanity
We are seeing today.

Pulling the children
From Mother’s arms,
From Father’s care,
To put them in cages
Is not following law.

It’s swallowing justice.
It’s wallowing in racism.
It’s the hollowing out
Of values that separate
Democracy from fascism.

No words can cure
These abhorrent acts.
Only action will work
Against the onslaught
Of our core beliefs.

When will this
Be the last straw
To make us all act
To make us all fight
To make us all vote.
