Churches are burning in the USA—
Seven Black Churches burned as of today!
These are Medieval tactics of terror
we’re reduced to. Whites, People of Color—
are all threatened by white supremacists
acting as if God gave them some great twists
we don’t have. Extra thumbs? Hatred of peace?
Neediness and greed? Do they think these
cowardly fires will empower their lives?
Earn them better pay, more respect, high fives?
God has given and taken greater ill
than you can conjure in your evil thrill
and wills us to hold firm in our resolve
and win so humanity can evolve.
