Syllable count: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc. PLUS a philosophical statement. Any combination of a prime number syllable count may be used per line, to avoid mirror images as this will detract from the free style feel. The line breaks serve as punctuation and no caps used, unless it is called for.

wars drugs poverty famine fear rape death and degradation that's the impoverished world desperate immigrants flee and yet we won't let them in go die on the other side of our new wall stay away from what’s ours we should be ashamed to call ourselves Christians there's no kindness in our hearts or tolerance for others even though God's commandment says to love our neighbors as we love ourselves (Suzette Prime) 8/11/2018
