Popular Violence Poems
Faith
by Jagrut Gupta

Today I cried a painful tear
for the world that’s falling apart.
The violence and the terrible ways,
I wish people would have heart.
The people of the world today,
It’s obvious they just don’t care.
The worlds too busy thinking of themselves,
They’re really not aware!
The images that I see,
Scrolling across my TV,

Americans All
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

A country divided
Depressing but true
Leadership wanting
By both Red and Blue.

Faction's aplenty
Each shouting loud
The noise overwhelming
Fomenting the crowd.

At The Quinte Hotel
by Alfred Wellington Purdy

I am drinking
I am drinking beer with yellow flowers
in underground sunlight
and you can see that I am a sensitive man
And I notice that the bartender is a sensitive man too
so I tell him about his beer
I tell him the beer he draws
is half fart and half yellow horse piss
and all wonderful yellow flowers
But the bartender is not quite

Purple Blooms
by Caroline Williams

Black beating wings,
In an empty house
Filled with empty souls.

Screams rebound,
A fist in the wall,
Blood on the pavement.

A love,
Fed with sickening

Hope for My City
by Michele Bandler

No hope for this city they say
no hope
Kids doing time, for
Crime, for the crimes
Committed against their ancestors here,
Long ago and now.

On a jury I put a boy behind bars
Because of the laws,
I had no choice.

Mater of My Mind
by Richie Kharis

A devil in an angel?
A bold voice in my cabin
so clear, like the sound of the ocean.
Yet unstill, like a wave in motion

She told me I needed to hurl before the clouds turned white,
I needed to retaliate by forcing blood from their mouth
She told me about my weakness; I heard my soft heart crying
She reminded me that procrastination weakens every action

Bruised
by Nancy Altraide

I was awaken by the scream
It sounded like pain
What is going on?
I asked myself
The scream became unbearable
So I began to locate the sound
It was coming from my neighbors house
He was having an argument with his wife
He had lost his temper and hit her
And left her bruised and shattered

Daddy Monster
by Louis Zo

Daddy, daddy, what is it you do,
Your green bleak skin, blotched and chewed?

I serve our kin, our Kings, to name a few,
who, with Their big, black arms, have ruled and rule the rules.
I kiss Their boots, lick Their hooves and pledge to do
anything a fanatic, a fool, a tool would do;
Ah-woo, Ah-woo.

Daddy, daddy, what is it you do,
