in the age of unanswerable questions

Editor back-issues, John Sweet, poetry

or what about this?

a man who says i have
the power
to change the world

who sees faith
not as a crutch but
a sword

and what we’ve become
is a nation of children
who cannot be saved

her daughter’s killer that
he deserves no mercy
the face of god should appear
on every empty billboard
in america

the leaders of nations
should be
burned as witches

after this though
what?
