It's a Disease


It spreads
It takes all of your energy
It can be seen in drastic amounts
So what is it?
It is racism.
It is laziness
It is sexism
It is all the problems of the world that we try to hide.
Can you tell the slave boy that he cant be free?
Can you tell the families that their daughter is never coming home?
Can you or will you develop any courage to take a stand?
So why is it?
It is racism
It is laziness
It is sexism
Lets be the doctors and cure the world.
Or can you turn around and block it all out?
Face it.
Thus it will be the future

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
