My rage now scorches my soul
Seething, slathering it in undeniable rage
The world swamped with excuses for cruelty seems
humanity selling its attention span for
Momentary excursions to post and pretend it was a worthy exchange for fleeting peace, no one rests anymore our souls cry out in the darkness against our pillows ,
no rest for the wicked ,
no rest for the complicit
We will deserve the next disaster even those of us who tried.
Inhumane stupidity will cost us all more than we can afford
and justice will turn to a thing that belongs to fairy tales like hope and kindness.
