Woe is Me. Woe is Us.

November 30, 2019

 

With the release of this year's story about refugees, (in part) I offer up this poem, which was written in late 2018.

I think it speaks for itself.

 

 

 

 

Spotlight to me

 

 

 

Welcome to the reinforced

 

Justifications

 

Of a suburban/urban lifestyle

 

With its exaggerated persecutions

 

And its trivial transgressions

 

Its play-acting martyrdom

 

And back strapping faux symbolisms.

 

 

 

Mirroring a supposed horror

 

Which few can relate

 

Or respect the depths

 

Of its true origins.

 

 

 

Justify thy existence

 

Thy lightweight complaints

 

Made heavy via exaggeration

 

The ‘Much ado about nothing’ moans

 

Hollow tantrums and cat ‘o’ nine tails

 

Victimisation.

 

 

 

Yeah, I’ll cry too

 

And make no change

 

As the currency of pity

 

Yields more gravitas than responsibility.
