Down With All Protest

Where is the criterion – right-wrong?
A noisy, loud, boisterous song
Or perhaps “Where on earth do we belong?”
Will the weak whither, ruled by the strong?

It is a hollow, holistic, heavenly howl
Disgusting, dangerous, some throw in the towel
Or if so bland, bone-headed, brazen; go forestall
Until the military/cop anti-group comes to call

For all proclaim the flag of liberty that we are free!
Yet scared, suspicious, secretive in what we see
Revolutionary now called “traitor” in no uniform
Must arrest, eradicate those from the norm

Instead, the peaceful prosperity of family
Struggling to maintain in a conflicting sea
And if dysfunction is on the plate
Arrest, protest under the umbrella of laws of hate

But squelch, choke, shut up contrarian slogan be
It’s to no avail, excuse and plea
A new society so upside down
Most dare not leave their hateful town

For wild revolt and retribution
Axe to your enemy is a new solution
Ethnicity, race, religion, mine
Incredulous, unethical, all by design

Escapee to far-off fertile land
But where to start and where to stand?
Demise of principles long instilled
The old democracy will soon be killed

New manners, morals, mannerism
Too late to find your own schism
A new world in new solid phase
Time to forget the good old ways

Alas, if you only knew
It’s just my fertile imagination and not all true…
