Red-Blooded

 
 
 
Let’s talk about this.
Exactly what are we afraid of?
Different skins, different cultures?
“These people are not like us.
We best expunge their presence.”
Legends ratify; we fear
and fight encroaching barbarians.
Bloody receding panorama
of battle upon battle.
Millennia built in genocide
proudly proclaimed.
We stand, erect shield, stalwart warriors.
Rough, sharp, incendiary,
valiant barrage barricade.
Protect Our valued and values
from Their predation.
Lines must be demarcated clearly.
Womanly, childish fuzzy vulnerability
walled far behind, confined to
defended shelters,
kept at bay with bitter sneers,
raucous recreation.
These patterns inculcated over
generations serve us well,
minimize weakening contamination.
