Heartland

Hear this
The silence
God to bless this
This violence

Conflagration
In the heart
Of a blessed
Nation

 

Damnation
Spare your rod
Consternation
No will to continue

A Wrought iron
Gated community
Fists of hickory
Violence with impunity

Calloused hands
Grip the rifle
Two grey pools
From which a calloused soul stares

Blessed be another day
In hell
A community hand in hand
Walks the fire
