desperate crossing

To all those who give
or follow
the orders;
who make a trap of
spurious borders;
who tear teething sons from
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
your sister,
your brother –

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

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