Pawn

Oh what a devious trap
lain to snare both weak and strong
oh insidious hunter of man
defiler of the righteous!

for how can one of love
not burn in hatred for the hateful
for those who slaughter the innocent
‘ore the ignorance of this world

righteous hatred is not of love
just as night is not of the day
love is love and hate is hate
yet how can we simply tolerate cruelty…

the assertion of an individual’s ideals
over the ideals of another?
we all share the same Earth
we all breathe shared air

wake up humanity!!
you are not wolves!!
you are not sheep!!
we are not but pawns!!!

yet even pawns can check kings…
