April 4, Three Crimes of the Human Race
The evidence of war crimes in Ukraine:
The dead civilian bodies in the street,
Dead bodies, mass graves, and a bloody stain,
The trail of Russian soldiers in retreat.
Mass shooting: this time in the Golden State.
Six dead, twelve wounded: that’s the toll so far.
Our death from guns pandemic won’t abate
Because, statistics say, that’s who we are.
Misogynistic, racist GOP:
Not one committee vote for KBJ.
They’re playing to their base’s bigotry,
For their electorate thinks that’s okay.
War crimes, mass shootings, plain old bigotry:
Should our Creator hide his face in shame?
Recurring themes throughout our history…
Whose fault is this? We have ourselves to blame.
