What happens when people start to believe in the walls and in the lies that trickle down from up above with dollar signs? You start to think of life as some kind of post-racial hell but if you say you're color-blind your eyes aren't open. What do you call a birth right if you stand up once but then you let go? We need to stand in the back and help push through. Pundits on the scene frame our friends as enemies. They can twist the news but we'll still scream. Why do we stand clear mouths shut to a nation state stretching into someone elses home? Indigenous communities here what happened to a birth right of their own? Entitlement slips into pipelines and I see another people colonized.
What do you call a birth right if you stand up once but then you let go? We need to stand in the back and help push through. First they take their land and then they shake our hands. You can cover your eyes but they're gathered around their flags.
