THE CROSS OF LOSS

Shame is the first act which chases
As the heart, in pain races
Soldier words in mouths take bases
Dead flowers of horrid laughter in ridicule vases
Such is the cross of loss
Turning a crown into a horse
With a foe as its boss

III
A crowd gives worship of pain
Darkness tries to make you sane
Thought of taunts, like a fearful boss, in hiding chain
A dying wish for a fleeing train
Such is the cross of loss
Turning a crown into a clown
Performing on knees at the toe of a foe

III
Heavy as it may be
Only sages at the far end see
Fools and those without its taste climb many a history tree
To make all visible even as time sets you free
Such is the cross of loss
Every wing given digs up its memories
A bold flight buries the thoughts
And makes strong hearts out of its lot

    Today Many Americans Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday.

    Dhrump for I will never refer to him as President is about to undo the entire gains of the Civil Rights Movement including the Voting Rights Act which means most people of color will not be voting in 2020. The Tyrant’s first act is to repeal the Affordable Care Act which means 20 million Americans will again be without any type of healthcare. Many Americans will get sick and die. We are about to see what it is like to live under a dictatorship. Dhrump’s plan is to undo all the Dr. King’s work and all the achievements of the Civil Rights Movement.

    We are returning to the days of Jim Crow. Dhrump plans to build walls not bridges. To deport millions of immigrants. To establish a database of exclusion for any one who is not a white male rich/wealthy christian. Starting Jan. 20th we will be no better than many of the countries some Americans have criticized for years. But for most of us there will be no where to run. No escape.

    Keep in mind most Native Americans still live in poverty on Reservations and during WWII Japanese Americans were stripped of all their worldly goods and forced into Internment Camps. Yes History repeats itself.

    As Dr. King said We have some difficult days ahead.
