JOINED BY DIVISION
I wanted to see you
Tell you how much I hate you
To throw these spikes of anger I harbour.
Hold dear all you arbour
You wrong me with every passing
I with every waking and sun rising
Vanquish you where you boast honour.
I wax as you wane
I yearned to invite you to this parade
In line stand all I hate
No common one of your taste
Baked in the same enmity
To get in your mind and find a seat
A mind full of perilous distaste
Hatred fills your head with strange tales
Measures against reconciliation
I wanted to question your stance
The spite you hold against me
Why you step on my chicks as they cross your threshold
Beat my goats when they pass
Yours bleating is music to your ears and
The language of your people.
No matter how well the hen dances
The hawk never pleased.
I wanted to cross my legs on your heart
This wicked spiked heart of yours
Studded with remorse
Scheming and plotting against my soul.
To blanche your black, overcoming your senses
Pour warm water over the ice in our chest
To kill this thing we share
Break us free of this snare.
We shall walk arm in arm down peace
And shame this division that brings us together
Empower each brazen other
For our greatest enemy is our wicked heart.
