isn’t safe anymore

imaged titled “Glass Shard From Steve’s Foot” on Flickr

the world collides
into chaos and violence
every corner store
or fast food joint
has potential for
a mad gunman to enter
and some people will
never get to eat again

the diseases are smarter
than our scientists
and the environment is
as controversial
as ancient history

forget about equality
of gender, religion, finances,
education, pay… etc.
no one is much interested
except the crazy people
on the interwebs
ranting everyday

i hole myself up
away from the world
safe in my cubby hole
and even that is threatened
by police brutality
or big brother’s prying

but now even
my house has teeth
there is no where to
be invisible anymore
nowhere to be myself
