The Butterfly Effect

Another year
as nostalgia bites.
As memories fight.
So many tragedies.
So much pain.
Targeted.
Politicized
for monetary gain.

As the calendar unfolds.
The day’s story told
and retold, again.
Twenty-four-seven.
For where have we been?

Humans are capable
of such magic.
Some, gifted shamans
create culture.
Some, cursed vultures
eat their own.

Whatever media
you digest, you will see
carnage and disease.
Revolution beckons
on lands yet to reckon
with their corrupt system.

The change we
seek must be questioned.
Will it be lasting
or will it be repeated by other
generations as we
feed the same corporations?

As we shout at the top of our lungs.
We are not invisible.
We are not alone.
We occupy life.
The stakes are forever.

One man’s body burnt alive
setting the global stage.
A butterfly’s wings creating change.
One world.
One people.
Given another year.
Another chance to get it right.
