who, US?

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

who, US?
by Michael R. Burch

jesus was born
a palestinian child
where there’s no Room
for the meek and the mild

... and in bethlehem still
to this day, lambs are born
to cries of “no Room!”
and Puritanical scorn ...

under Herod, Trump, Bibi
their fates are the same;
the slouching Beast mauls them
and WE have no shame:

“who’s to blame?”
