Did you think I’d like my oppression?

By | 13 May 2024

Why should I pay for my leaders’ crimes
When you never paid for the house you stole?
Injustice won’t support your goal

When you took my land by force
And without my permission
Did you think I’d like my oppression?

Does killing me make you more safe?
Does starving me give you more food?
Does my suffering put you in a good mood?

Why must I drink filthy water?
Was its cleanliness a threat to you?
Just like those babies in NICU

When you made more enemies
By forcing loved ones to meet their maker
Did you really think you’d be safer?

Why aren’t we human enough for you?
Do we not smile when we are kissed?
When you strangle us, do we not resist?
