Poetry, Politics

fyi – no action needed

We preach intolerance as independence
Cowardice as community
We see caring as insurrection
Divison as unity.

We claim injustice as birthright
Rewrite history till it’s chaste
We quote holy books and heroes
When it suits our taste.

We assure young men of their futures
As long as they toe the line
We hold a mirror to ourselves
Even though we’re blind.
