Ignorant… [POEM]

We immortalize unimportant things
and remember the forgotten
like tragedy
and make people unfairly popular
blasphemy
strange fruits still hang from trees

we make diets of living things
unsuitable consumption
vomit history
long for the priceless
throughout

and trust masters
brethren despised for class
the masked just
alas
perfect words for imperfect worlds
doubt

sexual beings being ripped apart
at the seams
seemingly dissatisfied
despite bigger
dreams

biased bigots bitch about
being
without
hatred

and reality scripted
screams aloud
painted

we laugh at people
who can not help what is laughed about
definition
of evil
sacred

mistake prone perfection
lessens the expectation
responsible
safety
until it is okay
to be
human

and all the while,

We immortalize unimportant things
and remember what we should forget
like tragedy
and make people unfairly popular
blasphemy
strange fruits still hang from trees
