BEYOND BARS: 2018 (Poem)

By Cristobal “Cris” Bazan
Kenedy, TX

Scandal after scandal getting exposed
Some men resign and others refuse
Spewing forth their beautiful, two-faced prose
But in life, win or lose, we all must choose

Hate continues to trump the right with might
I see no difference with the seperatists
Inbreeding will not empower the white
So we must challenge the supremacists

The great divide continues to expand
It affects us all regardless of race
The rich get richer and the poor be damned
The American Dream I will still chase

One can only hope for a better scene
People, welcome to 2018
