Current Affairs

No More

heart aches
soul cringes
anger rises
reality hinges
on the complicated death
of simple lives
for blessing
for healing
for salvation
and falling
into a deep despair
for a country dividing
so deeply
cleverly inviting
into our homes
It's time to shut
and lock the door
to hatred bred
in neigborhoods
in schools
in government
in pools of fetid waste
left by an ignorant society
waving flags
brandishing guns
to show the world the reality
of how a society is undone
by letting anger
rule the heart
and soul of a nation
