“Man buys all the pies

At McDonald’s to spite

A crying child behind him

In line…”


After snorting with laughter

While imagining his thought processes

Sadness overcame me


For the child

For the man

For all of us


Have to wonder

Who is walking

This Earth

Behind smiling masks

With such hatred?


Who cooks our meals at restaurants?

Who bottles our pills at pharmacies?

Who slashes and burns our sick bodies?

Who divides us with hateful words?


Am I the only one who no longer makes eye contact with strangers?
