This Aggression Will Not Stand

Children in cages at the borders,

long lines of women fleeing violence

from actions our government

has taken in their countries

to enrich a few.  

What is the answer?

No more hitting the snooze button,

it’s time to wake up.

We have sequestered our hearts

in the hopes the prince

will arrive, but the forest

has surrounded us with thorns

and the property has been condemned.

The percentage of people in peril

supporting the top tier

is growing; we feel their boots

on our backs and rush to the

chiropractor only to find

this can’t be adjusted.

Pinch yourself.  We must awaken,

spit out that poisoned

apple, and rise up.

Inspired by:  Property, Percentage, Sequester, and Snooze.
