who shall we condemn today
and who shall we elevate
picking and choosing
like gods openly playing favorites
how many times must we surrender
until peace reigns on earth
and how many times must our
hearts be tested before
proving our intentions are true
and those gods who willfully
come and go at their leisure
who’s to say they’re not the ones
continually adding fuel to the fire
march two thousand nineteen
