Blood Porn – poem (#2)

blood porn

bodies greet me at 7 am
covered in mud & blood & sheets
tattered & torn
atrocity after atrocity
in town after town
the only common link is
these bodies are brown
displayed & mocked & presented for cash
no privacy no hope no justice at last
our grief is on stage played for laughs
our sorrow is dismissed for we are have-nots, not haves
