Ancient Egypt and ancient Mesopotamia are both examples of cultures that performed sexual acts as a form of worship. The intent for the utilization of these sexual encounters was to mimic events from their cultural myths to ensure the continuity of that event. This mimicry can be categorized as a form of sympathetic magic, or a type of magic predicated on the belief that an event can be affected through an object or act symbolizing it. For ancient Egyptians the purpose of these acts was to…
come frisking out to meet them, bucking out their pens,
lowing nonstop, jostling, rushing round their mothers
so my shipmates there at the sight of my return
came pressing round me now, streaming tears,
so deeply moved in their hearts they felt as if

Joyce Carol Oates also annunciates for a people whose stories are not often heard in her heart wrenching poem “Poetry is the Gnomic Utterance from Which the Soul Springs, Fluttering”. It tells of the power in which words can have. In Oates’ case, the power of what happen when we become a witness. Her poem relays the effects what we usually are not shown on the news; the reaction and the emotions that come with the baseless death of a child.
The Black Lives Matter Movement has been largely…
if you pile upon it
More of thine. This love that thou hast shown
Doth add more grief to too much of mine own.
Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;
If satisfied, a fire sparkling in lovers ' eyes;
If thwarted, oceans filled with lovers ' tears.
What else is it? A madness most polite,

She spends all of time caring for the basil and waters them with her tears. The basil grows beautifully and gives fragrance. In Keats’s poetry nature is always considered to be female and he describes it beautifully:
And, furthermore, her brethren wonder´d much
Why she sat drooping by the Basil green,
And why it…
While others came in to break things. Very bad, mean people did this Selmic.” Mama continued to talk as I began walking to the bedroom. The thought of not having a fridge or a stove because someone decided to take it from a poor family, brought tears to my eyes. There was only one bedroom in the house and when you entered it there were even more clothes thrown everywhere and an ancient couch in the far-left corner that was missing its cushions. I never thought I would appreciate my twin bed back…

a paramilitary response from the police at the city and state level. The federal government criticized the state tactics related to the use of tear gas, attack dogs, and militarized vehicles on the protestors: “The Justice Department also said that the use of dogs to control crowds incited fear and anger among protesters. It also condemned the use of tear gas without warning” (Bora, 2015, para.5). In this manner, media coverage of this event defines the negative reaction of state police agencies…
