The Normalisation of Lies and Crime
Powerful and needed words by a talented writer.
In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
Rib cages burn
with the pollutants of politicians
curled inside their darkness.
Inside of ours, conscience and despair
battle it out –
defending ourselves against the brutal
and cowardly thumps to our innards,
bruising softer organs
so injuries cannot be detected
on the outside.
We take these jabs and kicks
with every breath we breathe,
when we’re forced to inhale
and sickening philosophy
and the stench of populist autocracies –
for shame, more weak minded people are
We are loathe to breathe
this putrid air – its stench
is rapidly suffocating us,
snuffing out normality
keeping in line with policies
deigned to compromise us
and the air we breathe,
and water that runs clear
and life as we know it.
Don’t let them win
