It’s Our Choice

They say they don’t
want us to hate
and fight, they
make rules that gag,
to make sure
we’re polite, ’cause
“we’re irresponsible”.

And yet they stand
on podiums and
say what they want,
inflammatory words
meant to ignite, so
that we’ll bicker and
get lost in their fight.

Hypocrites they are,
the ones with their
double speak –
their goal is our ire,
they want to see us
fighting each other,
burning in their fire.

Let’s not.
