From Horoscope To Holocaust

Originally posted on 8/25/2010.

Enslaved to a horoscope:
some won’t drive far when Mercury is retrograde.

Engaged by humor:
offense slides off their numb tongues.

Enthralled by heritage:
no credit ever given to others.

Eviscerated by holy writ:
scourging unbelievers while in prayer.

Enlisted by history:
they reap and pile the designated scapegoats.

Every time it happens
we call it inevitable, divine will

or the stars setting wheels to rolling,
when in fact it comes down to

whatever excuse we allow to rule us
without forethought,

and from horoscope to Holocaust
is not all that far to travel.
