A Final Moment of Silence

  Details   DMCA

We are neither above nor disconnected from nature, but in our survival of the fittest, we leave our children dependent upon earth's response to our global abuse, from birth to girth.

When did the sanctity of human life become, follow their conscience to off-shore accounts for the wealthy and off-range point-blank objectives against innocents? When did obstruction to common sense and praises for assault weapons become sacrosanct, at our expense?

Without a care, robed in inheritance for bear, Wall Street is dressed to kill earth, air and fire while buying water as ware for more man's inhumanity to man -- including parents losing children to NRA's bottom-line bulls-eye plan.

Until we dare to bear witness to our long history of assassination by the limited vision of radicalized conservative genes, and demand life-saving laws vs. maximized magazines -- our youth will be heir to what follows record highs of violence-inspired hot air imposing drought and blood liens.

Fathered children, in lost embrace, barely able to vocalize through the stagnation of reason, swirl now in an ill wind -- focalize on political alliance and parental tears, and when the smoke clears, all that's left behind is, I can't breathe during another moment of silence.

In a crowded theatre, school, church, parking lot, or anywhere on the world stage of mass murder, we are either the life-line preventing dire human destruction or the choir settling for preaching over yet another preventable bier.

The universe and all of the diverse life within it has a pulse, and though at its faintest in Congress, whether in Manhattan, the Grand Canyon or water-stealing Las Vegas, life's pulse is palatable until, believing in Wayne LaPierre liar, we find ourselves raising another premature pyre.

In natural ire, nature fires up occupation by human competition, for in the wilderness we are perceived more rapists of, than stewards for, the cathedrals of vanishing loved ones and forests. We need find our moral roots before being forced to weep again at an altar of slaughter, where lie the targets victimized by the practice of easily exchanging common sense for under-regulated legal mass-murder instruments.

For our sandwiched children caught betwixt and between, climate future and potential doctor suture -- it is trial by crossfire: old angry men flame-throwing like Grand Dragons dying to burn up what's left of their haul in little red wagons. Fearing it's their Last Hurrah, they try tie-dying America in bigotry and voter ID, failing to recognize Open Carry is the real outlaw.

Now that those who haven't the will for gun, earth, fire and water solutions, you Millennials must save yourselves by saving the planet from corporate institutions. Rented Lobbyists bribing away our political balance and free clean water prove, we lose someone, when principal is abandoned and sowed collusion reaps death upon our daughters and our sons.
