JUST AS THE FASCISTS

We stood by you
Thinking you’re humans too
We wailed with you
Thinking you’re feeling it too
The inhuman treatment which makes you feel like an animal
The crass treatment meted out by many a cannibal
Until we saw it
Even at your worst, you still manage to treat us like dirt
Thinking you’re more human than a brown or black
Who gives sympathy to those who so it lack?

II
Your home is being shelled by bombs and guns
You’re fleeing to another’s with your runs
Yet you see colour, making you a bully
Will it be wrong if I say you deserve it duly?
You cry terrorism like a toddler
Cursing Putin and calling him an insane handler
Yet you see humans like you danger fleeing
And you treat them like your mere dropping?
Who gives sympathy to those who so it lack?

III
You can’t force a man who merely visited to learn
To take up your gun and your patrotism yearn
You can’t be a woman who acts a woman foe
Because you see colour, there’s no difference in their toe
You think you better
But their families know them as best
So quench your horrid heart so bitter
And let them also rest

IV
They’re sub humans who treat others as subs
It is fair to crack the skull of bullies just like the stung crack the backs of crabs
Real faces turn demonic when fake faces fall
This is for you racists who disgust in me call
I blame you not though but our leaderships through their deeds
I blame you not because they’ve planted such corrupt seeds
Sending royals to lands mostly like morgues
Just to learn to feed
…to work to succeed
But by all means you lot deserve your fascists
You horrid hateful racists

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
