(in three parts)
part one

A MASS MURDERER’S ALTERED MIND
My mind is boggled
and buckled
at the determination
of evil
to be
so
perfectly purposed
to massacre man
and devastate families
and create carnage.
What if
that same
determination
and perfecting purpose
was a
channel for
goodly creations
and strategies
for alleviating hunger?
What if
the same
determination
to buy a gun
and execute
innocent men
was used
to buy food
and execute
hunger
from the
face of the earth…
rather than
to
execute faces
so innocently
birthed?

  1. Yes, and what if we tend to tortured souls before they implode/explode. That will be our signal that we are becoming compassionate.
