Look under rock and in darkened cave,
Delve into nightmares your wakings enslaved.
Tell me O’ tell me what is it you fear
In each thing you see and each that you hear.
News of invasion and hordes stoke your fire,
Of conspiracy theories you never do tire.
Immigrants scare you though ancestors were one
You hide behind barricades with knife and with gun.
In each person of color is seen a terrorist’s face
Afraid they will conquer your white Christian place.
How sad it is to live with terror neverending,
An old way of life you are always defending.
Change is but natural and always has been
And not loving they neighbor…well that’s still one of God’s sins.

Thank you very much Carol, I haven’t been doing much of it lately and I had some fun doing it. 🙂
Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
BRAVO—ESPECIALLY THE POINT AT THE END!!!!!! 🙂
Thank you very much for the re-blog Jonathan, I appreciate it very much. 🙂
Very appropriate for so many people continue to pre-judge and don’t realize how wrong they are. They may not even see themselves in this negative light, Dom. The last line is exactly right.
Thank you my friend. I agree that many people probably don’t realize how wrong or offensive they are.
Not only the rhythm, but it flowed very nicely man. Well done!
Thank you very much for saying so Jason, I appreciate it.
No worries it was a good write. 🙂
