Our National Church

By Samantha Terrell (Rated PG)

We say our daily prayers, and convene
With fellow man,
And friends on
Social media,
Tailored to reiterate our Likes.
And then, we watch our evening shows
Where bullets fly, and people don’t die,
But miraculously rise again
To record the next
Most-watched season!
So, when
The news
Reports of lives lost
Due to needlessness, excuses
Are quickly made
To explain away the issue,
Or better yet, distract us
From the fact that we create
Endless victims of circumstance
When we prostrate ourselves
In worship at our revered church of violence.
