Poem: About Rights

Voices claim

rights to justice

From streets to stages

they proclaim sources 

of wrongs.

 

Do you

 teach your kin

with words or actions

that's their right

to kill?

 

Then there's

 no safety for

their siblings or parents

For who wins

rights, wrongs?

 

Clean streets 

from immigrants scum

But who's the scum?

You say that's 

the bad. 

 

In cheer 

and pomp citizens 

judge right from wrong

But yours can't 

 be deployed.

 

Does God

 support those who 

in the name of 

country kill to

right wrongs?
