The Stark Request

This plan,

That’s been conducted,

This continual use 

Of the cat’s paw,

Is an unconscionable, disrespect

Of life’s breath,

In a country 

That lives by freedom.

Wouldn’t it be 

Most bountiful to redeem,

The one sold for nothing,

And to allow the word

To free from blame

The dispossessor?
