BrooksLooks @ Crumbling

Crumbling

sermons unheard

unspoken good words

a song unsung

lessons unlearned

in an inhospitable place

where manners don’t matter

in an inhuman race

cruelty seeps

onto the world’s bloody streets

gunfire and grief

beyond our belief

shots fired

our frayed nerves hot-wired

dignity’s bridges burned

simple kindness spurned

if civility is lost

was compassion the cost?

beneath uneasy skies

too many why’s

morality decried

a teacher defied

a pastor sighs

and the poet cries
