alone is the cleanest war. at least it’s now fought fair. may have lost a household, but he’s gained a world. raised to lower, brought up to put down. i call it genial bigotry, a family tradition. the honor of dishonor, as values resound. spit back at a bloodline of racist transmission. wasn’t them he so despised, but their beliefs he hated. free thought over family was a choice not long debated. one less fruit on this family tree. and now he’s fee to love un-bstructed. to marvel at this vast civil bond he’s constructed. reborn, emerge. and now cut the vein. write him off. he is alone.
