That Day We Raged

That Day We Raged

Do you remember our anger
the day they pulled the bodies

Limp and dirty, coated in grime
and how care-less they seemed and we

We would change things, punish them for
what they did, it would never happen again
we raged, raGeD RAGed

In tweets, blog posts, opinion columns
in newspapers, it was what people talked
about on talk shows and news

But today, as the numbers click, click, click
fast for three maybe four dollars a gallon,
our minds rest only on the destination, or
anywhere but the bodies they pulled out
that day,

That day that we raged.
