"We Are All Equal Under God" by Maura Quinn

We are all equal under god

We are not all equal on earth

Worst mass shooting in U.S. history

But the mass was not held in a church

Nor a school

Nor a mall

Nor a mosque

Nor a temple

It was a gay nightclub

I feel the asterisk in people’s minds

God has stricken

An abomination



An abomination

That separation of life’s value

If it

And the life it is

Is of no value

That though is alive

I could hear it

That indiscriminant discrimination

I am


I am

What I am

There is that

Nothing more

Nothing less

I am
