When leaders become violators of human rights
Using their lagging conniving techniques
To manipulate, motivate, and ensorcells
Those who are ignorant or lack intellectual acumens
To lead themselves out of a rut created by our systems
Of economic growth that preside with the material worlds,
We, the people, become their Puppets, thoughtless.
Politicians’ speeches today contain content that uses
Demeaning, derogatory, even vulgar contents
That empower one race or religion over others!
Why, why do we still follow these creatures of dissention?
Why don’t we permit ourselves to be humane and lead to a graduation
Of compassion, empathy, understanding, and humanization
Of our beings? Let us express our beliefs freely,
Without rancor, hate, or division!
Man’s abhorance for what s/he doesn’t acknowledge
As accurate, real, truly verifiable is what is limiting
His progress ethically, for s/he seems to be regressing
Into polytheism and empowering scientific knowledge
Over values that teach humanity not to stay the course
Of being altruistic to their own variety and difference.
