Poem… hypocrisy in america

Peace is the answer. hypocrisy in america is not meant to justify violence, but to condemn the country’s greater hypocrisy. Peace is the answer.  –L. S. González-Acevedo


hypocrisy in america

–june 2, 2020–
springfield, ohio

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

in 1776, the riot was white
and called “revolution”
but when the plight
has color, the fight against oppressing institutions
is called “riot”
when the struggle is white, its warrior is a patriot
and an anthem is worshipped that reads:
perilous fight, bombs bursting in air –the poem proceeds:
their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s
pollution… the glorification of violence without regrets
when an act of protest has color, it’s a crime or treason
a president threatens the people with military action & prison
should we celebrate the fourth day of july
when the colorful are excluded?
a rational reply…
what exactly is to be celebrated?

hypocrisy in america will appear in a future book of poems & stories–

(release date | July 2021)


 

Poem… u.s. president 45’s racist math

u.s. president 45’s racist math

–september 17, 2018–
columbus, ohio, usa

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

“3000 people did not die,”
tweets mr. Racist Bigot.
this monster’s hatred is so sly
entrenched in evil, he pivots.

only “6 to 18 deaths”
3000 deaths??? no way!!!
tweets 45 out of 45
not #1 out of 45
but dead last out of 45:
the devil’s friendship, he won’t betray.

how many puerto ricans make one human?
consider president 45’s racist math:
“166.6” –tweets the liar, his lie as gargantuan as lake huron
(a party enjoys his waters & jet skis on his water paths)

“when 498,000 puerto ricans have died,
only then 3000 humans have passed.” –u.s. president 45

let’s see if the Fool is as arrogant when he’s tried!


u.s. president 45’s racist math will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–



 

Poem… i saw the “face” of god

I stand with immigrant, migrant, and mobile mothers & fathers –especially those who have been separated from their children by Satan’s agents: president #45 and his demons.


i saw the “face” of god

for president #45

–june 17, 2018–

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

in america 2016, i saw the “face” of god
and the outpouring of “his spirit” in 2017

ever since, this unrecognizable god seems to linger
like a repeating nightmare
that gets worse and doesn’t go away

he sees “the other” with hatred and intolerance
as if his children were better –superior
fallacy of fallacies, vanity of vanities

this distorted god inspires quotes from the holy bible
to justify separating children from parents
and criminalizing the search for dreams

the fake elijahs of today stand before their own god…
a great and powerful fear shatters lives
can the true lord be in such fear?
with fear comes hatred
can the real lord be in such hatred?
with hatred comes intolerance
can a merciful and loving lord be in their intolerance?

the true elijahs await the gentle whisper
of love, courage and acceptance

because in these, the true god abides


i saw the “face” of god will appear in a future book of poems (release date | July 2020)–

Poem | Poema… only you | sólo tú

only you | sólo tú

for president #45

–september 28, 2017–

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

only you can turn POTUS into something else
because hatred, fear and nothingness are your grand estates
with elfish hands
you managed to turn POTUS into pendejo of the united states.

sólo tú puedes tornar a PDLEU en otra cosa
porque tu odio, miedo y cobardía te han consumido
con manos diminutas y palabrería babosa
tornaste a PDLEU en pendejo
de los estados unidos.


only you | sólo tú will appear in a future book of poems (release date | July 2020)–

only you | sólo tú será publicado en un poemario para julio 2020–
