nice poets

Nice Poets
From the US poetry community 
there is silence about this new war
they feel indignity 
something must be done even if they 
know the sins of their own country. 
It is easier to be morally right
about others 
There is this bitter taste of poetry that
remains unwritten, to be
ostracized and rejected for writing 
what bothers them about the sureness 
of the righteous. 
There is a Russian TV station, in English, 
has been blocked in USA. 
One truth is enough, alternative truths
are too cumbersome.
Shoot first and ask questions later,   
the sheriff mentality rules ok.
And those who think it is a sham will
be hunted down to the end of the world. 
So what can an American poet do but
to write about the snow in Nebraska
