Harvest Of Hate



Harvest Of Hate
 
Once said
A wee
Whisper
A mere
Seedling

Broadcast into
A harvest of hate
A bullhorn of bull

Once weeded out
But not eradicated

Muffled
But not
Silenced

The harvest is back
Verdant fields of lie’s
Grow wild among us

Words of hate
Printed out
Pressing
The impressionable

Tearing down
Tolerance
Breaking down
Brotherhood

Building up
Walls of isolation
Closing
Doors of sanctuary

We MUST
Head off hate
Tear down those walls of ignorance
Blow open the doors to wisdom
Smear the words of war
And SCREAM...
NEVER EVER AGAIN!!!
