What if there had never
been a Socrates
an Erasmus
a Voltaire or Mark Twain

unexami01_400never a Gandhi
an Oscar Wilde
a George Bernard Shaw
or a Dr. Albert Schweitzer

never a Frederick Douglas
a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
and never facing
down opposition to reconciliation
a Malcolm X

and we were all
stuck
stuck as some of us are stuck
in the divisive war-making
and criminalization of race
and the rot of history

and left to live and
to die of ignorance
in the profit-making
bedlam of bigotry

as some of us are
stuck and corkscrewed
living still and dying still
plague-struck
rage-bitten raving
short
on empathy devoid
of critical questioning

anxious
terrible
and terrified

in the world today.
