The vindication for fear

Of loss

Of others not understood

Of the unknown

Of change –

Cultural, social and demographic.

It is practiced by people

Of all colors

Races and religions.

It is both knee jerk

And strategic.

It taints modern


An answer in itself.


It is a dead end


A temporary balm

Of the beguiled.

Like revenge

“Best served cold”.

History is never kind

To the malicious.
