hanging a sheep’s head above the door

to sell some dog meat without blinking

slinging lies to save just yourself

while the ship is slowly sinking

holding a Bible outside a church

a foolish act of false salvation 

hosting a party on the white house lawn 

while the cities burn within our nation 

helping one’s family to get rich

while forgetting about those in need 

scribbling out this short poem 

that you hopefully will read 

Jason Love was born in Camden, New Jersey and still lives in the area. You can find him on Twitter: @jason_love1.
