These eyes still have their seals
Oblivious of a world on wheels
A cup for mouths and animals
Like Abels in a Jesus world
They live laughing in loving misery
I have seen anuses feeding their soil
At the full glare of many
As flies chorus the pushing
I have seen the flies following and dining with hands
Blessed with brains
I have seen a going and a coming
With nothing to show
Tired muscles screaming through showing veins
At the injustice done them
There must be blessing in ignorance!
They give with no knowledge of benefits
They chant with no knowledge of duties
They thumb with no knowledge of implications
This must be the dream of politricks!
You beautiful hearts in an unfortunate place!
Arrested by need!
Punched by greed!
Entrenched in the past!
Intoxicated by ignorance!
How I wish modern literacy were a spell
Under my helpless grasp!
