Wake Up

No gas in Nashville,
Palin Posturing,
A nation deceived by identity politics and the pernicious sting of white privilege,
Countries spoiled by profligate consumption,
Chinese writhing under the weight of Mao’s legacy,
The earth mourns the blood spilled by the sport of the hunt,
Drilling, drilling!!
Raping the very dust that birthed us,
Lord Yahweh, Vishnu, Allah, Jehovah, Jesus, and Krishna,
I can see you on your throne, weeping, screaming to your progeny,
Wake up my children, Wake up!!
