This is what it has come to?
Rights stolen. Families broken.
People left feeling unwholesome.
Half a man, in fact, half a human.
And less than half of what we deserve to be given.
Kidnapped and tortured.
Coerced into labor and abandoned with
a clouded plague, feeling un-favored.
A fight fought peaceful.
A fight fought painful.
Both fights in which we were defeated.
More and more loss.
Less and less progress.
And it’s sad to say that I feel
almost immune, but that has become most of our
tune when so many of our brothers have
had to leave their mothers too early
at the hand of a badge that those men are not
worthy to have.
If it’s war you want, trust us, it’s war you’ll get
because this time we won’t allow ourselves to rest.
