Woke

Nazis marched in the streets

armed with

fire flying flags flaunting

hatred that only fools

believe was defeated long ago.

Statues fall

humans grow

allegedly

but apparently

not yet.

Minds freed stood

in forces fighting

against a white sheet of invincible hate

the beliefs of an enemy capable

of surviving the test of all human existence.

Then he spoke words

eventually

words still so preposterously false

that ones with the ability to think clearly

are still puzzled trying to

process the propaganda

the ignorant rhetoric

spewed by an elected official

unfit to hit spell check

let alone lead the free world.

A spoiled child

raised by maids and privilege

wants to educate the masses

on what it means to be a great American?

A coward famous for dodging responsibility

whether it was

to family

to god

to country

believes that these Nazis

marching down the streets

of America were wronged by

someone who looks different than them

who thinks different than them?

That irony is repulsing and

proves that the fight for equality

might be an impossible dream dreamt

by greater leaders then

what we are left with

during these days of late.

Progress was drowned quickly

with a recessed sense

of what it means for

all men and women

to be created equal.

To defeat this klan

of power

there will be more blood

spilled

an inevitable evil

of all war

but bullet and blade

will not rule the day

nor will they determine the winner.

A war so rooted

in hatred

one with such a

violent history

can only be won when we

use our minds

to sense what

all men and women

should have in common

deceny.
