Are We Done

1057279_10201298376402279_961141033_n

With horror and war
master king and lord
dog eat dog for more
race caste and class
that leave some of us last
religious righteous stand
nation colored flags
walls great and long
boarders spiked with thorn
history again and again

Are We Done

With egos hysterical dance
graves wide for mass
bullets in children’s skin
embedded reporting spin
earth as whore to man
man as whore to oil
political punching bags
elephant faces and
donkey’s ass

Are we done yet or do we need more?
