Let us rant and rage
On how the world is a cruel and unfair place
Yet we feed scraps to the dogs who love us so much.
Let us break down the walls
So we can put up new ones to show that we are also dominant
Despite the crevasse between our legs.
Let us pretend
The law of the sea does not preserve you
While nature continually tips the scales in your favour.
Let us include everyone
And tell them their choices count
But fail to mention that the process is prone to miscalculation and tons of red tape.
Let us say all lives matter
But remember our inclusion is graded
By the complexion of our skin.
Let us celebrate ourselves only
And put the things that let us be whistled to first
Like the dogs they named us after.
Let us mourn the death of a few
And drape monuments in sovereignty
But watch on as nations rip their bowels apart by the seeds we planted in them.
Let us pray to their god
And lap up their history
Because they will always be right while our origins hide in plain sight.
Let us promote freedom of choice
But wail when the freedom curtails our choice
Because everyone has a voice.
Let us be each other’s keeper
And bleed those not with us dry
So we can erect beautiful epitaphs to them with the money which would have kept them alive.
Let us pity
And not move a finger to help
While we pray that someone’s heart be touched to save them.
Let us say we are the sons of the sun
And eclipse those in the darkness
Because light belongs to light.
Let us pretend they knew God first
And we are pagan
Even though they are the unclean ones amongst us.
Let us kowtow to the belief
That propagates the ultimate self interest
And be condemned as evil when we reflect shades of that.
Let us listen
Before we speak
And understand so we do not destroy.
Let us all be equal
Even though some of us will be more equal than others
And that is fine because we will them our power.
Let the powers that be tell us
That we neglect ourselves in our squalor
While they dine and sleep in the beds of an erstwhile oppressor.
Let us put guns in the hands of the suppressed
So that they pursue their vendetta
And we pick their pockets while they are not looking.
Let us do this
And let us do that
But the truth is we never left the wild behind.
Let us be immortal in the work we leave behind
Since we are probably on a one-way ticket out of here
We will only be celebrated when we are dead.
Let us pretend freedom is not chaos
And equilibrium is never achieved with equal measure
And rules are the height of perfection.
Let us not do as we please
Because when we do
The fires of hell wait to claim us for all eternity.
