Nine, One-One


By H. Ray Baker

Crescively rampant injustice,
Without any thoughts of retard.

A million tons of anger crashing,
Upon gates of callous regard.

Our times are restless, with feckless deeds,
That speak of wind and strife.

Is the heart or head more guilty,
Than the hand that holds the knife?
