Fascism

Mussolini was right, you know.
Sometimes tyrants can be,
despite the atrocities. Race is
not a reality but a feeling and
a dangerous one—one of
separation. We are all members
of that race we call homo
­          sapiens sapiens
.
By that definition, the other
races on this planet have fins
and feathers and flowers.
But we are not separate from
“them” either, as the idea of
race would have us believe.
The reality of our DNA runs
much deeper than any “race.”
And, unlike some tyrants would
have us believe, no conqueror
race exists except for those
who align with compassion—
which conquers all, sometimes
         called love.
