Blood, White, & You

An age of enlightenment
Escaped us again
Shoved into the cellar
With our dignity
And seeping heart

The bloated albino
Eager as ever
To blame
Abuse and remove
Every color
In the rainbow
Shake off the robe
Light up the crucifix
Thicken the callous
Of a collective soul

Our mother
Drips from deep gashes
While black tongues
Hiss of Jesus
And collateral acceptance
Psalm sellers
Cradling children
In a stranglehold
Of crosshairs
And averted eyes
As a hundred years
Of unwatchable sedatives
Slip down our throat
Inside a greasy wad
Called freedom
