Abomination = Me
Somewhere, a child’s stomach growls as politicians a thousand miles away move heaven and earth to take away her sustenance, smiling all the time. A teenager wraps his lips around the business end of a shotgun, beaten down by the years of hallways taunting, the relentless barrage of dehumanizing mockery and insult. There’s a mother huddled over her children in some outlying dessert village, praying to anyone and anything that the invading gunmen — warriors for The Almighty — won’t kill them like so many dogs in the street. Sightless bombs are dropped for freedom, directly on the heads of innocents. Cancer kills a brother, a father, a sister, a mother, an aunt, a cousin, a friend. A highway pileup takes away a woman’s legs. And here I sit, fretting about my fantasy football team. I am an abomination.
