Go home,” the mighty Christians say

from their soapbox of indignities

our taxes too high we need to slay

those who’d deny our vanities


Embarrassing ignorance

happily displayed

hatred in torrents

intelligence delayed


Maybe it’s the distance

from Emma’s creed

begetting an entranced

and ugly breed


“Your tired, your hungry” sentenced to crawl

back to Central America; “Mexico”

while goodness & ignorance resort to brawl

to kindergarten a few will go


They will go to your schools

learn your lessons well

they’ll know all  enemy’s rules

that armies were  sent to quell


And lo many, many years hence

you’ll stare from old window blind

having forgotten hate’s energy spent

begging beautiful leaders, “please be kind”



 The New York Times’

headlines scream

Armies of children

Armed only with dreams
