JulyPoWriMo 24

So the sacrifice we have made these months
Has been squandered as the past four decades
Idiotic ideology sent
Us spiraling from the rest of the globe
A disease trickling down oblivion
As schools open like any hardware store
Only with unremediated mold
From textbooks published in the seventies
Which will only be updated to teach
The controversy of evolution
As a species defined by empathy
Instead of the corporate bottom line
You are only useful if you ignore
Those you accost on your way out the door
