Free speech for the 1%

Retreating

Retreating

I can no longer be outgoing,
I am retreating from the world,
Knowing its horrors
Forces me within
Are they outside or in?

The empathy that kills, kills
The love that loves does, too
The drunken haze of other days
Returns, without the drink
This is for you

That makes me think
Euripides was right
Not light, but night
Without end
Like a poem for a friend

Are we able?

Are we able?

All praise our myths
For they are ours
Grown old, stiffed

Lying rivers rage
White lies our lie
Raging torrents the truth

Brave founders arrive
Genocide the befores
The joy of fatal shores

Brave ANZACS protect
Fake freedoms
In foreign deaths

Fair go, mate
It did, and went
Victory, their class hate

Let us rejoice
Young and fleeced
Their wealth, our toil
