Buddhists and Muslims
Sometimes, buddhists attack muslims with trivial provocation!
Thus both sides are led into ethnic tension!
But if anomalies are resolved,not much sectarian violence
will be perpetrated!...

Premium Member Lucifer, Vamoose, Sir
The old Devil, his name is Lucifer
When I see him, I tell him, 'Vamoose, Sir' --
  The Devil grins his sly smile
  Pleads, 'Let me stay for a while' --
I chase him away with an ethnic slur...

They came here

no freedom of speech

Never again
When 6 million Jews died
You said never again

Yet it happened again, again and again
The genocide in Rwanda
You watched

Ethnic cleansing in Bosnia 
You waited

Till the worst was over
Then slowly waded in

Now Rohingya and you close your eyes
Do you remember you said never again?...

Racism
It’s not realism it’s racism a whole organisation  left bleeding on the pavement like Stephen,a force that’s racist and corrupt and they wonder why in them we don’t trust it’s just a colour it’s just some skin a man should be judged from the values he holds within not because of his background accent or ethnic origin....

Standing Unspecified
My gender’s not the fairer one,
my student status ... past,
mine is not the voice of region
nor a specific caste.

No network calls me “one of us”
nor seeks to mollify,
I'm not considered ethnic, thus
I do not qualify.

The journals, competitions and
calls for anthology
don’t explicitly ask for bland,
old, white-guy poetry....

SECRET WAKE
savage
      
       running under the moon
       selling the night
  
                        sanitizing

the hands
after the killing

            truth
            withdrawl
vaginae still inviolate
            seeds wiped off
                         from the face of earth

            ethnic cleaning

I LOVE how Dr King rescued the US Constitution
He did not revolt; Gandhi offered him a method he despaired finding -
Mere men and women see darkly. One ethnic eye, one condescending
Great human beings are great human DOINGS, too. And forgiving ....

(c)Deo. Happy Dr. King Holiday to you. Shalom, shalom I say, as I also lift up the Memory of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Dr. King's loyal friend....

NUMBNESS
The sound of animosity 
wakes you up.
There was a shadow war.

The ethnic otherness,
when you were ditching 
the sermons, the adjectives.

Will you accept the 
atrocity of nouns who keep 
on inviting the fat spiders ?

The vision has failed. 
I don’t find any cue
to the nests of sparrows.

Ah, the booming guns.
But I was talking 
to Sisyphus.

There’s nothing more beautiful 
Than a native song
A native dance
We move to the beat
Made wide the door
Pulled open the sash
To the simpler things 
We can treasure once more
An ethnic custom
A traditional meal
A friendly smile
Crossing over the miles
From someone you knew 
Once long ago
There,
With you still
Smiling down upon you.

Seafaring Foreigner
Seafaring Foreigner 

In steerage on a steamer with
Figs conceiving in Vesuvian soil 
Hidden in a pot of a sturdy trunk
Made of hope and adventure. Fear of
Sights unseen and joys unbeknownst
Of sons and daughters yet.

Hazy canyons of skyscraping giants 
Overshadow brick row houses
Hard at work, ethnic pride
Shameful bathing, worn-in
Clothing and nourishment
Beyond the return to 
Much worse.

I search rows for a name engraved,
     Engraved here, not native Poland;
          Poland, war and ethnic cleansing,
             Cleansing, her mom thrown in a hole.
