Destined We Are To Repeat The Past - Poem by Leah Ross

if things keep on going like they are
were still in Iraq battling the enemy
we are building walls to keep people out
migrant immigrant Mexican matters not
racial profiling is still going on racism is everywhere xenophobia is still happening towards those who are different
we love to hate think black lives don't matter
segregation is still going on in the deep south
Martin Luther King is rolling 50 times over in his grave
sadly we haven't learned a thing
we've learned nothing
