Word of the Day Challenge #89-Untitled Poem

Stand upon the stage
hands raised
perceived enemies
while coddling
known criminals.
the foundation families are built upon.
rewritten in your own image
rewritten to eradicate
that you do not believe
that you have decided
no longer belong in the books.
I have watched
mouth tight
no one doing anything
no one can
for hands are tied
minds are ruined
in-fighting begins.
A mockery you have made…..
of a once brilliant past
of those who dare to disagree
of those who challenge your mind
of those who should be protected
you use as bartering chips.
Your downfall is nigh
astonishingly amounts of ignorance
cannot hold much longer
or can it?
We have lost the battle
it has been a long long time
the war is finally coming…..
check your facts
check your figures
you might want to make sure
you have a secure hidey-hole
We will be coming.
In the night.
You will never know.
Take back our time
eradicating you.

    that you do not believe

    that you have decided

    no longer belong in the books.”

    Although the whole poem drips with a rage that has become all too familiar personally but these particular lines are so acutely relatable, I felt a twinge.
