poetry by j matthew waters

enter at your own risk

the american experiment
implodes yet again
semi-automatic handgun an
early christmas gift
designed to stop the testing
taking place in halls of education

a country founded on violence
will forever remain violent
laws set in concrete
ensure this basic tenet
while the pursuit of happiness
is gunned down all too often

december two thousand twenty-one
