The Lynching Tree

Inspired by Jake Morrill:

In the shadow of the lynching tree

Next to angry voices

Picnic baskets

Raw privileged certainty

I reject my brothers philosophy

Of “I can’t breathe!”

Because he doesn’t look like me

Because his family tree

Has roots going back in history

In the shadow of the lynching tree.
