Bigotry More Alive Now Than the 60s

Giddiness pretends we love indifference
Desperation in ignorable thoughts
Status quo readies us for church and stuff

Our heads buried like the pink flumed ostrich
Having more in common with us than us
Hatred follows us around like mouse traps

Head clouds are pretty not hearing squeals
Bigotry alive more than the sixties
War? Why not? We have our assault rifles.

Dr Martin Luther King tried so hard
How many of us still remember this?
I feel he would be ashamed of us.

Come take a picture so we can pretend
Crazy out-of-sync is our new normal
Souls leaving hard and fast now to escape
