dsc_0192Two redheads selling white male privilege

bestsellers in the United States and Oz

hitting number one toiling hatred

orators of propaganda and loathing

pinning their fear on the lapels of the vulnerable

bit like yellow stars of old

patches of fabric with no starry night beauty

no promise of kindness on the mistral

just bitter cold of a stone floor

heart whipped with icy stares from redhead believers

believers who struck a match on misogyny and racism

schoolyard bullies who never grew up in search of parents

believers afraid of change, too selfish for humanity

it’s easier to hate than love

easier to blame than accept responsibility

easier to deny the truth in reality’s eyes

easier to wallow in mud puddles of self loathing

and search for scapegoats
