desperate crossing

To all those who give,
or follow,
the orders;
who make a trap of
southern
spurious borders;
who tear teething sons from
desperate
crossing fathers;
who cut the tight bonds of
nursing mothers
and daughters;
who imprison the homeless,
the exile,
the other;
who implicitly seek
to bury the meek,
as Cain did
his brother –

What has been revealed
for all who have
eyes to see,
and consciences
less faulty,
is your deliberate
cruelty.

But the days are now,
coming,
you’ll see,
(though it is not my
prophecy)
when all the white lies
will be sheared from
the sheep
and the scapegoats will rise
triumphantly.
