Bad Medicine

We made America
with a blind madness
that sowed fields
with death.

After the cold steel
of a long winter
new grasses soon hid
last year’s bones.

Some leaders
work to hide our history
out of shame, discomfort
and political advantage.

They are the same people
who refuse to tell
their doctors
their whole health history.
