Handcuffed to Your Repression



You put links
in your chain
of bigotry,
skin color,
religion,
sexual
orientation.

A rattling
rant of
hate And
degradation
spills from
brutal lips;
hypocrisy
polluting ,
dividing,
killing.

In your
armor of
self-
righteousness
you wage
war with
one arm
while the
other is
handcuffed
to your
repression.

Hate spares
no one.
It will
eventually
consume
the hated
as well as
the hater.
