The slaughters go on as they have.
They do so distantly, in Gaza, Congo,
In Ukraine, in Sudan and Mexico,
In parts of Ethiopia, Sahel, and also
Right before our eyes, in gun-filled
Parking lots and streets. All living
Beings kill to live, as we, the so-called
Highest order, do, and we do more
Than that: we follow leaders who
Convince us killing keeps us safe.
