Charlottesville

You can’t trust anyone
When you don’t trust yourself,
And who with a heart
Believes his own innocence?

My brothers rage
Throughout the streets,
Burning their vile anger
On torches of bigotry

My allies huddle around
Our father of freedom,
Who nonetheless
Raped his slaves

We’ve brought this doom
Upon ourselves
Through centuries of ignored hatred —
America’s true legacy

My country’s being torn asunder
With scabs of violence running red
For Liberty’s tree craves tyrants’ blood
Yet more often quells the innocent
