We’ll call em’ French Fries again

I wrote this poem last summer in France…
Violence begets violence, hate begets hate, and terror begets terror. So it goes… Lets break the cycle.

Cartoon drawings of

profits

splattered with blood

draining from the

wrists

of artists pushing the

limits

tempting the reality of a

world

we’ve created since the

crusades

fought now by Muslim

police officers

dying in the streets

to protect a country

that sees no difference

sees the same

faces

names sound the same

faces of Muhammad

faces of Osama

unnamed

faceless,

face it

we’re racist

about face

racing against

time is no longer on our

side of the road

dead children

playing with

bombs dropped by

soldiers fighting for

fighting for

fighting for

soldiers know not what they’re

fighting for

freedom to fight

more war

after war

after years of aggression

and oppression

and exploitation

and

this is nothing if not

new-age colonization and the

empire never dies just

travels to new kings with

new crowns

and we don’t want to be

royals

flush blood diamonds

drown in crown

royal
