From the inside looking out
Cities give unwilling offerings to takers,
while police and national guardsmen expose
their playing cards on a mirrored table; not enough
of them against a rainbow people, the pawns of prophecy.
Tired awoke well rested full of fuel of flames
burning fire proofed laws.
Quarantine cleared the consciousness of lambs. The alter
was constructed to hold only one, and us animals realize
that. The task is snatching the next sacrifice as the blade
is lifted by those who protect and serve. They were once
animals until they were hand fed oppression with expectations
of defecating on our rights.
