    Tears Within a Fist

    I sit within the mire of my stupidity
    The colour of my flags
    And the uniforms I wear
    Purchased with my blood
    From the latest of fashions industry

    And each cliché clique I set aside
    With the verbal jingoisms of my time
    Waves the banner identified
    To the sewn and stuck on labels
    I bought myself to gain one inch of petty pride

    I die with the adage and the verbiage upon my lips
    I still scream to spit the hate
    Into the hated face of a face I have never seen
    And in tears of fists and buried earth
    Return to this my inheritance in the rubbish and the dirt

    But who amongst my brethren
    Wakes sweating from a nightmare they were told was just a dream
    And where upon their conscience rests
    The ogres I elect
    To sift my truth through their net of their deceits

    The hammer strikes, the scratches burn
    The forehead my fist rests upon
    Clenched in disbelief within my soul
    I cannot refute what my heart can see
    Regardless of how the advert tells me it is so

    If not action then to numbness
    If not a voice then into silence
    And nothing will stand against the cowards and the parasites
    Who’s rape constitutes the plight
    Fear bred into the death mask of this world

    And if by hate, then hate it be
    If not to set my people free
    Or upon the wound
    Lays its promise
    Of unrelenting light

    So many times I have heard the call
    In faith and love
    The word assassinated on their sacrificial cross
    To deaf ears and dead hearts
    Who wait for the miracle to confirm to their given lot

    And so wait in vain for the word of God

    Never once did mankind heed the voice
    Never once realising they had a choice
    To lay aside a burden
    Repent and turn aside from a way of life
    That was not their own

    Lost now in the voracity of a world they cannot see
    Reality a blind constituent
    And survival the only recompense
    Where it appears to peer into the truth
    Written in their T.V screens

    ………………. And knuckles and fire and cold hard edge
    Reaps the vengeance still unformulated
    When one day these tears within a fist
    Will turn from their own self-punishment
    And Indignation will fuel the caustic mercilessness in our eyes
