Male Ego - Poem by AHO Speaks

Men have often sacrificed their sons and daughters
Histories pages filled with their ritualistic slaughters.

It was not the female who raised the stone as a weapon to kill
Rather the male ego, in an expresssion of his powerful will.

Flesh of flesh, blood of blood and gene of genes
Male actions, wants and deeds; tend to destroy the dream.

Before you sanction destruction best you taste the bitter pill
Remove yourself from this world and silence your will.

Caesar did not give the gifts of life, soul and choice to the people
The God of three sides not on on a coin and not on a steeple.

When sons and daughters are sacrificed to bleed
Who will sanction the unforgivable to remove a seed?
