girl interrupted

a protest poetry

My blood on your hands father

screaming in scarlet rage

inks today in red letter

crimson sacrilege

My blood on your tied hands mother

crusts, maroons you and me

and yet, we can protest

damn destiny

My blood on your hands Country

courses carmine in citizens

Will you stop the massacre?

your daughter asks

***
