Statue of Liberty

By Elvira

Madame Liberté
vous arrivé de France
forged in steel –
workers’ sweat
to symbolize Liberty –
the price: Blood
People weep trading rags
for silk —
forgetting how your “betters”
treated you

You look down – not up.         Silent, as
those committed to Hate
overcoming the senses
“All lives matter” –
IN THE Savages’ rant

You, Lady of the Lamp –
weep for us; we
all the children
of Satan.
