starving unity

January 26, 2011

starved for solutions
we panhandle

trying to make sense
less the acts committed against us
are constant reminders
of the poverty-stricken-hatred-increasing
mentalities they hand out on welfare lines.

the races are racing.
black v. brown
latino immigrant v. puerto rican
the cultures are clashing.
gays v. queers
muslims v. christians

divide to conquer
their spirits.
divide to deplete
their strength.

a minority remains a minority
if they believe so.

starve them.

their children watching. listening.
eyes wide open. ears pressed.
history on loop
will replay itself.

…and they will never come together.
