Fall Guy

What would it take
to heal and not kill?
Maybe I could
formulate a pill

I'd make it 
Donald Trump and imperialism
would have no zeal

Cease attacks in the Middle East
Put an end to this

Dress the wounds
Inflictions pierce

inequality feeds me

The great debate
All-time greatest orator

First Amendment right

Who rolls the dice
for the undercaste,
the lowest 
of the lower class? 68 more words
