All Part Of You


What unacknowledged part of you is Mitt Romney?
What unacknowledged part of you is the police officer
in his gas mask and riot gear?
What part of you is Israel?
What part of you is Palestine?
What part of you is the secret Iranian nuclear missile program?
What part of you is the bratty American gymnast
smirking at the world because she only got a silver medal?
What part of you is the undocumented Mexican field worker 
changing her baby's diaper under the apple trees
with hands stained by toxic pesticides?
What part of you is the Aurora Batman shooter
with his Smith and Wesson assault rifle?
What part of you is the dolphin who feels like
beaching herself?
What part of you is the Paul Ryan budget?
What part of you is Jesus?
