No cis white male
can act as a lone wolf.

We have an entire culture committed
to indoctrination
of toxic masculinity and male entitlement.

This shooter had been
radicalized by
  the capitalist,
      colonialist,
         patriarchal idolatry
that serves as
the one true god of Western culture.

No cis white male
can act as a lone wolf.

His den is littered with bones
Fom pasts kills he does not regret
A system reminding him of his due

His pack is hidden in the bushes.
Teeth bared,
   low growls,
      drool falling.
"rights and privilege"
are the god's word on his tongue.

No cis white male
can act as a lone wolf.

He doles out comeuppance
his actions justified and whitewashed
carte blanche immunity of the system

The media machine set in motion
blood lust,
  license granted,
    and almost sanctioned
His pack calls him mentally unstable
The lone wolf, the packs scapegoat.

No cis white male
can act as a lone wolf.
