Free Verse Nonsense

This is a free verse poem.
It may not meet the high standards of poetry soup.
It is also highly controversial.
The writer of this poem realizes that poetry is supposed to be light and fluffy!
Just like TV sitcoms.
But hear it is anyway, (oops hear, I mean here, is spelled wrong, automatically
disqualifying this poem as reflecting any beauty or talent at all.)
Hope it does not wound anyone too badly.

I Wonder what the headlines would be like if Fox News existed in the early 1800's? 
Perhaps something like, "Despite minor slave trade infractions this month, such as 10,000
pieces of human chattel suffocating on their own defecation, 5000 female slaves being
raped by their masters, and 9,000 male slaves beat to death for smiling at their master's

Wow, how badly I long for the good old days of "American Morality!"

    Hear, hear! Oh, what a cynical poem indeed! This is super. I was going to post a sarcastic 'slave' comment, very close to your own poem here, but you beat me to it. Bravo!~Chris

    it's funny,a comment made during a CNN interview with an avid militia,neo-nazi,who stated that all non-whites should go back to their homelands because America is a country for whites....white america....still,in the 21st century,only what,50 years removed from the civil rights movement,and a 100 plus years of forced slavery,and most still harbor these sentiments....amazing isn't it...
