Kenosha

The Trial of Kyle Rittenhouse

For killing two people his praises are sung
By Congressman Cawthorn
And Gosar and Gaetz,
And the Fox News Channel jumps in and creates
A documentary of the hero’s life,
This child who was only seventeen
How he bravely fired his AR-15.
Not guilty, judge and jury said.
No justice for the two men dead.

I studied religion at the UC-Berkeley and have been interested in the spirit ever since. I try to give my poems a spiritual aspect whenever possible.
