Day 76: Punish the Innocent

Punish the Innocent

 

Why do you run to the left

When the thief runs to the right,

Why do you blame the child

When the parent taught them how last night,

Why do you punch the writer

When they didn’t want to fight,

And why do you punish the innocent

While the guilty runs free;

What gives you the right.

    I have to hand it to you Allen. You cut right to the heart of it. And what’s astonishing to me is that this has been a subject that’s been on my mind all week. Thank you.

      Thank you for the comment, and the reblog. This is one I’ve been thinking about since I read a blog yesterday that involved boycotting innocent companies in Iowa because they are in Iowa. My video on youtube goes into better detail.
