Hate And Genocide

Hate and genocide

Born out of Cain’s sinful rage

Still we’re plagued today

Finding new ways to murder

Has become man’s obsession

Impunity

Injustice lives on

Made evident by our courts

Poverty and racism feed its hunger

Until blood is spilled to satisfy

Nothing changes, civil rights are a myth

Insinuated to please the skeptics

Then in one fell swoop

Yet another innocent dies with no justice served

Day To Remember

Day to remember

Like so many seen lately…

Anniversary.

Nine murders in Charleston

Changed nothing in this country.

 

What has to happen

To stir the minds of Congress,

Perhaps a revolt…

One that cannot be ignored

Regardless of the money!

 

People have value,

Trumping the death peddlers

Who profit in blood.

Now another forty nine

The next anniversary.

Second Amendment

Second amendment

Times do change and so must we

Guns aren’t the answer

How many more have to die

Before we show some control

Before I get any angry comments I’d like to make it clear that I am not anti-gun ownership.  I do however, believe that assault style weapons are unnecessary for the average citizen to own for personal protection or otherwise.  We continue to make excuses that banning assault weapons wouldn’t have changed anything and so our leaders have chosen to do nothing and as a result nothing has changed.  We continue to see an increase in mass shootings and an ever greater amount of death with the murders weapon of choice…the assault weapon.  When will one more death be too many?

Blood Red

Blood red,

The rainbow bleeds

A river born of hate.

 

You dare not question God,

He is perfect,

He is perfection by your own admission.

How then are they an abomination?

Are they not created by God,

Are they not flesh and blood and bone,

Are they not born,

Do they not die?

 

You…yes you are the blasphemers!

You will swim in the lake of fire on judgement day!

 

How dare you question God!

How dare you judge His perfect creations,

Taking their lives as if they were nothing.

 

If God truly is omnipotent,

Then they are just as worthy in His eye as you are,

Deserving the respect,

The honor

And the love

Afforded to all the children of God.

Round And Round The Story Goes

Round and round the story goes

One that’s as old as time

Where it stops nobody knows

Causing tensions to climb

 

These 50 odd years since civil rights

Have made so little change

Hatred between black and white

Festers like the mange

 

Fear of lynching may have passed

But fear exists no less

While walking the street they’re still harassed

No matter how finely dressed

 

Ask Sandra Bland or Michael Brown

Oh wait they cannot speak

Too many names buried in the ground

The future seems so bleak

 

Justify and deny all you wish

Your blindness it won’t erase

200 years by chains and switch

Like animals kept in place

 

Nothing has changed in modern day

Ask Eric, Tamir or Trayvon

It matters not what any of us say

Because either way they’re gone
