Eugenics - Poem by James McLain

When governments wanted some thing better
scholars, soldiers
many countries in the recent past tried
to improve them.
the U.S. and Great Britain were no different.
True racism by they put aside
encouraged the dim witted the genetically flawed
by force that moved villages
whilst tearing families apart accused of inbreeding.
Sterilization, mental illness, people whom scored low
on intelligence tests
common thugs, those whom relied upon violence
to take what belonged to another.
Marriage prohibitions
and forced sterilization of people deemed
unfit for reproduction
while Sweden and the US, still practice it.
Some supporters only argument to it's implementation
is that by the use
of eugenics policies is that regardless
of whether 'negative' or 'positive' policies are used,
you are vulnerable to abuse
as your selection would be determined by whichever
Political group is currently in political power.
Millions of voters have for years voted for those
whom plainly tell you
that a vote for me is a vote against your best interest.
The Marchman act and Baker Act
in most states clearly allows forced incarceration when
one attempts to harm ones self or others.
