5th Annual Independence Day Poem

                    In Dependence

it’s easier to celebrate than to understand
particularly when you’ve had no part
in the creation or maintenance of a thing

anarchy may be the only moral form of government—
unfortunate that it produces more injustice and inequity than all others

what to do?

people are incapable of governing themselves
because governing themselves inevitably involves governing others
which is always abuse

instant ratification
of sundry agendas and appropriations

the rights of millions
can’t be sheltered from the actions of millions

what’s the use?

the complicity of bias
as inevitable as
blood
