The poisonous blast of ignorance rips at my face,
bursts my eardrums, sears my nostrils and chokes
the breath in my lungs. Its black cloud lingers
overhead, dropping random bombs of deadly gas. The
heat stifles and torches with murderous intent.
There is not one moment of calm which would attract
peace. Disaster thunders without cessation and hope
is burnt cinders whisked away by the force of hate.
Hate that will not be harnessed. So much better
would be the breeze of reason.
