The Head Is Amiss

How could one so young have hatred
Such ignorance to this has led
No experience supports this
Obvious, the head is amiss

Wrong to think, or even be said
Growth and tolerance is a miss
Change can redirect what’s been made
Obvious, the head is amiss

These vile thoughts should have been dead
Open the soul, see what’s sacred
Such evil thoughts arise with dread
Obvious, the head is amiss

Such behavior should be dead
With such thoughts life is without bliss
If not, mankind will see the end
Obvious, the head is amiss

Another day of trying new types of poetry.  This poem was inspired by a YouTube video featuring a teenage girl espousing about how she hates black people.  The video is an example of a sickness that exists and evidence that racism is just as strong as it has ever been.
 The poem is a Krielle, which is a French poetic form.  It is a four line stanza with the fourth line being a refrain.  Each line must be 8 syllables long and be in the rhyme screen of
aabb
abab
aaab
abcb
There are no rules regarding the length of the poem and can be only two stanzas.  It is at the discretion of the poet.
