Devils and Angels

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.
