will our deranged rhetoric lead to violence?

Absurd Violent Rhetoric Will Lead to Death


In these dark and dangerous times
There are so many deranged voices
On the right and the left
Screaming non-stop
Violent incendiary rhetoric
Across the media universe
Amplifying across the twiterverse

Calling out their opponents
As enemies of America
As disloyal traitors
To the nation

The words of hatred
Will inevitably turn
To actual acts of horrific violence
That is the nature
Of words of hate

Eventually the words
Turn to violence
As they take their words
Turning them into weapons

Soon all too soon
The killings will start
And once it starts
Who knows when it will end

Will sanity prevail in the end?
Will love conquer the hate
That is all around us?
