This subject seems timely, and was on my mind….what say you?
Mankind has always tried
That which is different~
And our kin.
History is filled with pages
Woman’s lib~civil rights~gay marriage~
We despise what we cannot define,
We fear that which may challenge our
Core beliefs~make us UNSURE~
Convert us to them: The others.
So we lash out~we strike fear~
We kill~maim~burn crosses~
‘Cuz that’s what we do~we’ll
Be DAMNED if anyone is going to
Change or challenge our beliefs~
We’ll kill any motherfucker
That says we’re wrong.
…And inflict on others what we
Fear most will be inflicted upon us
And our kin~it’s okay, though
Because our way is correct~our
Beliefs are true~And THEY needed
TO BE SHOWN.
We hate ourselves because
We have no self
And inflict that fate
On generations to come.
