I think I'm having a social disorder...

Prejudice
a beheaded chicken squeaking high
baring a heart of the defiled 

Bigotry 
a pompous mouse's attempt at a boxing ring
gnawing frenziedly at a tiger's claw 

Racism 
while others are painting the sky with rainbow 
color-blinds smear it with black and white 

Violence 
black clouds' dread of birds' chirping
a desperate all-out burst to be heard

Sexual Abuse 
lonely sperms go mad, flood the brain cells 
penetrate any hole to become a whole
