The face of the most ignorant
from caregivers who attempt to escape the most dire conditions
with nothing but the clothes upon their backs;
putting immigrant children in jails
allowing them to become lost, guard-abused and trafficked
due to the ignorant’s terrible actions;
fires veterans who stand up to it;
threatens to order its troops to fire at those who react against
murder of the horrifically oppressed citizen
(there are other ways to solve problems,
namely by speaking to them with reason);
ever before, during its term;
but that was because women had to stand up and fight harder than ever before
to survive its term, and to try to protect against a second one.
Most of us aren’t even members that nation
but when the fourth riche comes into power
one takes notice.
We all must work to help nip
the ever-consuming choke-weed in the bud.
We all suffer eventually.
Do not think you will be knee-up on the world
if you lack compassion for whoever suffers now.
Remember what happened after the second world war.
Three-quarters of a century later, the innocent descendants
of that then-leader-of-destruction
are only a little less hated by the world at large
while the Reich’s war criminals are not quite
all dead in their prisons;
still living with the terrible guilt
of going along with the then-most powerful
pale beast on the planetary surface.
Gods heal the gathering ghost of that beast
and gods please, please,
show mercy even on our greatest enemies
for if they can forgive themselves
they will become as angels of mercy in the world at large
and the structure of the time machines
will be single-silver-horned and flowing as light
and we will all be working together in higher frequencies,
dark with love and intermingled colours
and flecked with galaxies of shining star, star bright.
