Evil by Donna J. Sanders

You can rid the world

of the vilest of flags

symbolically shared

 

you can censor

every loaded gun
disarmed citizens fear

 

you can preach

peace, love and all lives matter

until your vocal chords tear

 

but unfortunately

there are too many souls

roaming with absence

leaving room

for wickedness to appear

 

this evil cannot be contained

it is everywhere

 

You can rid the world

of the vilest of flags

symbolically shared

 

you can censor

every loaded gun
disarmed citizens fear

 

you can preach

peace, love and all lives matter

until your vocal chords tear

 

but unfortunately

there are too many souls

roaming with absence

leaving room

for wickedness to appear

 

this evil cannot be contained

it is everywhere
