i just hope

Posted to Poetry and Politics

when all this is over
and the numbers finally hit us
beyond the bodies
even if you're not a mourner
a believer
(knock on wood)
no matter what side you're on
when we all feel the crunch
of the numbers
if they resort to a tax raise to cover war expenses
the rebuilding
if we go into recession

i just hope
we don't turn around
and point a finger
"it's those damn ___?___
coming into our country
leeching on our resources"

i just hope
we don't forget
