POETRY FOR INCLUSION

We need both and then some
lying prostrate perseverating on
the why, the how, the when
We need both and then some
the pious puzzled parrot’s
syrnix grows exhausted with
three syllable repetition
Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
Meanwhile septic shock flows freely through America’s organs of frailty and imperfection
Meanwhile trauma sheds it’s serpent skin only to be retraumatized by voracious venom
I do believe in heaven and the resurrection
I do believe in love, faith, and justice
And I believe that the current state of America is seeing rivers of red minus the white and blue
