Where do I begin

Where do I begin,
what words will convince you
that a knowledge of history
is not a conspiracy
and that no matter the cause
slick words cannot bring back
kids murdered and maimed by men
in search of profits and oil.

Truth, as written
by winners and their right hands,
is that democracy is the best way,
so children get mowed over
as we’re busy celebrating the 4th
and the shape of our lawns.
