Evil is the New Black

Orange is no longer the New Black
Evil has trumped it

with gun-slaughter
domestic terrorismus
unlawful law enforcers
sniper attacks

blood splatter
media porn king pins and queens
luxuriating in the horror
like a bubble bath
after a hard day

thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers
thoughts and prayers

another funeral
interviews on wide screen TV
24-7 news cycle
weeping mothers and children

it’s so banal
it’s all the rage
to be enraged

Congress on vacation
needing a break
from truth

how hard it is to see
when you won’t believe

  1. Every week…every other day, another tragedy, another police attack on people of color, another suicide bomb…we”re getting numb. We’re all getting immune to the horrors of violence and hatred. The media is having a field day playing with the orange faced goon and the daily horrors in the world. Sadly, I do think our species is on its way out. Unless some kind of revolution of compassion and love happens.
