Please Wait Till Gun At Head

 

THEY said they were going to do it, quietly…

You did nothing…

THEY stood at the edges of the stone steps and screamed it…

You did nothing…

THEY told you to your face, their sour breath in your mouth…

You did nothing…

People, the threatened, cried out in fear, sweet children, the others…

You did nothing…

THEY mocked, cries of fear sliced by sharp insults, PUSSIES!, BABIES!, SNOWFLAKES!…

You did nothing…

THEY RUSH IN something small, something like it, judges would strike it…

You did nothing…

Small somethings aggregate, grew, PUT IN context, something larger…

You did nothing…

Alternate honesty, alternate integrity, truths attacked, democracy harder…

You did nothing…

Alt-Facts equals lies, racist white Alt-Right equals wrong, Nazi salute, the proof all along…

You did nothing…

THEY mistreated one, merely one, different God, different father…

You did nothing…

People stood up, fought back, marched, chanted, people not like you, different…

You did nothing…

Mistreatments slowly swelled, THEY yelled, WET BACKS!, sent back, others…

You did nothing…

The streets boiled, protest, afraid, yet brave with rage, NO WALLS! NO CAGE!…

You did nothing…

THEY fingered violence, rare, SEE!, while peaceful persistent majorities, WHERE?…

You did nothing…

NASTY WOMEN!, grossly grabbed, no meant yes, just a jest, no choice, locked up, raped, blood coming out, PUSSIES

You did nothing…

Somewhere else, salty tears fell, lost on salty drenched drowned, BABIES

You did nothing…

Others, starved, others, hanged, others, died, fragile lives, SNOWFLAKES

You did nothing…

THEY ban your God, THEY mistreat yours, THEY send yours back, Your health choices taken, Yours drown, Yours afraid, THEY kill yours…

Only Now?

Only Now You want to do something?

Only Now You want to help?

Only Now You want to fight?
