Sunday Stew: Exceptionalism

by K.D. Senior

 

We the people, 

free the world with democracy, 

but bind it with capitalism, 

talk of due process,  

where money is innocence and poverty is guilt…

 

While headlines read: 

“The world’s youngest empire masters Triumph of the Will” 

we teach our young to shake hands

with knives behind backs, 

cause the first rule of war

is to

–“strike first”
