I’m taken to the absense of honour
Taking with me the shrouded truth
The sweltering of tongues spoken
In forums of devils and angels
Waging war with number 2 pencils
A poetics of diversity silenced
Decicively. Pompously. Violently.

Emotions coloured brown and black
In the shadows of privilege
Painting victims in cruel shades
In forums of devils and angels
Where a war rages between colours
The narative of history censored
Carelessly. Ignorantly. Blatantly.

Paint the killer white as a hero
On the wings of destiny defined
Through skies as clear as thoughts
And forums of devils and angels
Taking war to a new era of fear
In the heartbeats of children
Narrowly. Shamelessly. Angrily.

I’m taken to the absense of honour
In the sight of all that I see
Tongues too thirsty to speak
In forums of devils and angels
Waging war with opinions
The poetics of reality silenced
Hatefully. Arrogantly. Uselessly.
