Blam Blam

 

“Get Out! You Don’t belong here !”
Spit the horn
Lift the veil
Lipstick smudges on your plastic polemic
And open mouthed roses
Fan the news stream
With PC speak
Black is the old black
And corporate white smiles
Pay for deception
And recycled lies
Oscar still says no blacks allowed but
Dogs and Irishmen okay
The revolution is late
And there’s no way it will beat the pink pockets of greed
That stand on the sidewalk
Killing those kaffir -lime -leaves
Dab red paint on every door of a refugee
Ostracise isolate and demonize
Don’t you wonder sometimes
How many souls have been hung out to dry ?
