Is this what you do?

What is the worth of an African child (to you)?

What is the worth of another‘s life (to you)?

“Not much” your unspoken answer voiced aloud,

Your answer read between your lines.

I know of your venality… sophistry… trickery…

This is what you are!!.

Your white teeth sinking in 

Always to tear the flesh of our youth.

Your marvel is still merciless.

Stygian, lugubrious acts,

You performed, committed in our soil.

Yet you claim to be seraph.

This what you are
