will you stand idle
while our world sidles
suffering, sinking in corruption’s grip?
Are you the kind to watch
scrutinise every botch
then make every mistake and stupid slip?
Do you belong, to the demographic
that fears the truth, when its grim or graphic
who tears up the books, deletes ‘offensive’ clips?
with ignorance’s blade their credibility strips.
come to grips, counter this, with truth’s bright light
stand in the darkness, shine it right
on monstrous truths in the digital night
hidden from ignorant, innocent sight
so alight the easy bus, take the hard track
walk in blackness when its meant to be black
forget false dreams
no good for the team
the world we need.
