“WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH HAITI?”

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH HAITI
I always get uncomfortable
when my friends,
religious or otherwise,
ask
“What’s the matter with Haiti?”
and
become piously critical
as they
adopt a secularly
‘better than thou’
raised eyebrow.
I want to scream back,
“WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH
STAND YOUR GROUND,
DONALD TRUMP UNIVERSITY,
PENN STATE FOOTBALL COACHES
THE
NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY
AND
ERIC SNOWDEN???”
So when folks ask me,
What’s the matter with Haiti?”…
I get uncomfortable.
