Decorum and Proportion

Panic at the Mall

Yelling, stomping, and screaming

“Get your gun!” “Shoot it!”

Hurling soda bottles. Why?

Hardly Jihadist; just roach!


A Road Ahead

When at every turn

an obstacle’s presented,

easiest to quit;

to say it doesn’t matter,

or to seeth in rage;

at the patent injustice.

Yet greater courage

requires much sterner stuff;

strength to seek another path.
