Something’s Wrong with Haiku

Our banks writing bills
Our lawmakers letting them
Our future is passed

Our bodies abused
Our speaking is then slandered
Our value erased

Our people as prey
Our protectors not serving
Our past still present

Our silence allows
Our vengeance devours us
Our words must ring out
