it borders on

to make the suggestion
your humanity is in question
to suggest you are observing
of the violence we’re observing
sometimes beggars belief
there is no commander in chief
that could fire gas into a crowd
where the child or the mother
is screaming out loud
that they feel the gas smother
and choke them as they try
to live a life and get by
fleeing from a country bombed into trouble
a life left in rubble
by those who cast them as invaders
angry rhetoric will not persuade us
