Can I press out what is pressing me and make them straight?
By following the path-makers and prompting when their paths are crooked?
Am I assured all will be taken in good faith?
Am I assured of my head on my body after I voice all out?
Am I assured?
So I and my likes have been given a day
Can I talk about religions which murder in the name of saints?
Can I ask their overseers to get an interpreter for all to be clear and to stop losing precious lives?
Just answer, can I ask them to create just a simple goat and give it breath to replace the many lost?
Can I ask Politicians to account for every little money they and their families gain while in power?
Can I lambast the elderly in the society for talking about unnecessary things when the country is plagued by famine and even urinating is taxed?
Can I for the love of God ask the future of those on the streets as I pay my taxes?
Can I defend armed robbers considering the hardship of the economy?
Please define the day!
Define this day when mouths are still closed on many topics
When my blood alone cannot atone for the fury of some men by voicing the unvoiceable
When society backs them in their ruthless desire to be unchallenged
When the heat of the day has an unfathomable explanation and the stomach churns and complains in need
Define the day
Please define the day
And let us ride on knowing it is there in name
But not in deed.
