MATCHLESS WONDER



We the people

Have

Burned trains in protest

Burned bras in protest too

Burned our boats

Burned bridges

Burned brides

Burned witches

Burned saints

Burned our own lands

In scorched earth policies

Burned our brethren with napalm

Burned books we didn’t understand

Burned our leaders in effigy

Burned ourselves in fits of madness

Burned spontaneously as oddities

Burned evidence that proved our guilt

Burned memories that we couldn’t deal with

What’s left?
