SETTING in the EAST

Setting In the East

The sun is setting in the East these days

Oblivious to the ways

Of catastrophic change

And

The range of depravity

Or

The gravity of evil

Which

Demands the sacredness of beauty

Be led into darkness

As the blind would truly see

And

The deluded sightful plea

For more spectacle.

*

A pale moon is lost

Its cool soothing radiance

Cannot comfort

Infants, toddlers, children

Or

Their terrified parents

And

family’s confined in cages

Rages mixed with fear

While all could hear the tears

Of

Innocents

Sleeping on concrete floors.

*

We dare not say:

America and Nazi in the same breath

These days

It’s so activist to test

The patience of compromise

Laying to rest

The notion

That democracy is no longer freedom.
