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.

I was thinking of you over the weekend, wondering if you haven't written anything about what's happening in your country at the moment. Now I see that you actually did. You didn't disappoint either. I am good thank you. Still going through the motions of Covid-19 and its effects on my City specifically. How you holding up?
