**Cleaning up some ideas, i wanted to get this on this site to go back to.

To the death
Our children learning geography through humans eating humans blaming humans assuming humans racist humans scared humans.
No, we can’t go there, children were shot, Mickey left the castle believe it or not, a new town marred and sandy hook scarred. Eiffel tower? and now the lonestar? St. Paul, New York, wait, let me stop.
It’s everywhere, where I’m not.
Oh, it’s here.
Less bullets more minds.
Why does it take death to realize
It’s racing through you when you first rub thighs
Inhaled between your infant cries
I can only surmise, you’ll act surprised when I say I see it deep set in those eyes.
The ones who kill others they haven’t met, willing to take a chance on a half baked bet
Fed through the tv set.
The stars of this show.
We are taught not to regret.
It’s in the mirror
A faint windex smear, I thought I scrubbed hard enough to make it clear.
The filthy ignorance of generations passed.
God damn Mississippi can we at least get past the spread of color on a gay mans mast or hue of human skin, please, at last!
What were you told when you were young?
Face your fears and they’ll be overcome.
Face them with confidence, poise and grace
Not the end of a gun or scowl on your face.
My team, your team, the team that won.
A stain on cities, the cost?
Do you see your place in history?
Understand you matter?
Is this even reality?
Struggle to know that we are killing one another, killing one another, a child has a mother and you are killing my brother. Assumptions, gumption and praised ignorance
This doesn’t make sense.
I don’t believe things are this bad, it’s illuminated by this new fad. Pop culture stupidity, video game invincibility.
That’s a child, your neighbor, police officer – you can name them.
So what now?
We can keep collecting cities, looking at kitties and all shapes of titties. Or, we can galvanize, open our eyes, stare in surprise about the reality that came from lies.
We don’t hate one another.
