New Poem: “Do Not”

Do not hit your pets.

Do not slap your wife.

Do not pound your machinery when it doesn’t work.

Do not ridicule others you think beneath you.

Do not call your son a loser.

Do not rape your daughters.

Do not, do not.

Do not surrender to rage and fear, the terrible tide of night and anger, when all seems lost.

Do not pick up that gun. Do not pick up that gun. Do not pick up that gun and aim it at strangers who have never harmed you.
