Failed History Lesson

equivocation nation

quibbles querulous

debating shades of enmity

equation of planful imprecation

with organic antagonized proliferation

refusal to rebuke a duke

racism robed and hater crowned

cowardice suits itself

scotch-taped self-admiration

blood drop power imitation

burning cross crested

malevolent aggrandization

violence gorges on exaltation

carrion scavenges in recapitulation

in vociferous condemnation

of virulent abomination

do I risk contamination?

bathing in noxious execration

inching toward hostile assimilation

paper doll cuts of peroration

I check my hate

at conversations’ gate

in quiet contemplation

color Mandela’s mandala

circle toward

hope’s rejuvenation
