Defending to a Loaded Gun by Sarah Bellum Mental

They open doors

to white supremacy

terrorists invited in

like it’s tea time

at the White House

while my love runs to

catch a train in New York

and has cops chase

follow

point loaded guns

at a man in service

and yell at him

to show ID

he sits between

death and life

at that moment

while resting on a bench

catching his breath

wondering why

he has to defend

running

to a loaded gun.
