Mortal Morality

Truth is, all of this is so, sad,

scary, superficial, and so fucking

 

stupid we don’t see it.  It’s the little

Syrian boy whose eyes glazed so much

 

his hat was positioned over his face,

because your own boy is around

 

the same age and think how

lucky you are.  People seem to forget

 

people flee when staying is no longer a choice

if you want to live.  All these wars-as inhumane

 

as they are—compare not with the moral obligation

to cry over the death of a motherless child.
