They always scared us with poverty
Now what’s left to be scared of?
We’re all getting poor together
They always scared us about breaking laws
They broke all the laws in front of our eyes
And the world was witnessing
They scared us with homelessness
We’re all becoming homeless
Whether by wars or banks
Or even by loss of our jobs
They scared us with blood and death everyday
What fear? We see blood and killing
And terror on our media everyday
And we’re used to seeing the killing
And bombing everywhere
They scared us over the left becoming the right
And the right becoming the left
What now that neither left
Nor right can solve this vast human misery?
Now our only fear should be separation
The separation of our hands
The separation of our voices.
