Bless you, Mr. President

His breath was foul-

colder than blood after death and as rancid as blistering orange flesh. He swore his spit was sacred

so they drank with insatiable thirst

to filter out the grime

and shield us from his division and moral stasis. But how could they swim?

In the fluids of an infidel,

who knew nothing of the Galilee Sea?

when he passed gas in our streets. We Could Not Breathe. They will always love hate,

they desecrate.

We just want justice.

Our bodies are overburdened with numbness. So when he coughed again

they inhaled.

But when he sneezed,

he killed us
