“Just Before Our Fall”
Silent we set, well too many set silent.
To those who have power.
No complaints to be heard.
Were they really waiting for a date or hour?
Aren't we all are here?
Straight, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender?
Republican, Democrat, or Independent?
White, Black, Red, Yellow, Blind, Deaf, one hand, one arm, one leg, no arms, no legs,
How might this matter?
People are finding monsters in the dark and under the bed.
Convincing them self that this fear is real.
Different religions, colors, left handed, right handed or LGBTQ?
Is any of this significant to you?
We are quite advanced in medicine and psychology.
We can search and learn and simple effort reveals it all.
As we stand upon the cusp,
Just before our fall.
