From the Lighter Eye
Some could care less about separation signs
Incongruent with universal mind
Harboring superiority as they rose from world war I and world war II, stealing populations and wiping out continents…..
Savages wiping out hundreds and thousands of people
Some could care less if that water fountain had that sign
Better to live with my dear
Better to avoid any contingent affiliation with
those that look at massacre so cheaply.
No, they said under their poised evanescent souls, fighting to remain as this line of black and white kept
incarcerating angels. No keep your saliva and your breath far away.
