is a myth.
We’re trying to group and organize
our thoughts and conditions,
what racists do to keep things easy.
Brand a group or situation “X.”
Mark the spot of a crime “Y.”
The devil loves conflation, combining
and confusing, hates when we make
decisions, loves when we lump and
Declare something “Good” or “Evil?”
Judge not lest ye be judged was not
a religious statement, but true.
Ask not what your country can do
for you, but what you can do for
your country was not political but true.
It’s a tragedy when murder happens,
but does it help to label the evil with
further labels like “terrorism” or
Evil is evil, wrong is wrong, and to go
further to categorize is to welcome
a slew of lies.
Muslims. “Radical Islam” are terms
born from these lies, we start witch

A good fence. The neighborhood in
check, my mind and body in balance
because I prayed first,
Or did nothing—the spiritual way
of the Tao.
