    Voodoo Doll

    Some image of hate or frustration
    The needles anguish you may have chosen
    To stick and jab
    In a collective spasm

    The agreement to solicit such action
    And beat onto the wall of prejudice
    The same nails you are crucified with

    Some sacrificial lamb to carry our burden
    The complicit blindness we accepted
    Was someone else’s oppression

    The fine wine and sumptuous celebration
    We were belly full
    On their starvation

    But we will weave the spell of the Voodoo Doll
    And hate it as much
    In case we turn that same hate upon ourselves
    We will not dare to look into the eye
    Of a luxury bought
    By the empty stomachs of children


    We will choose the ragged doll
    The faceless and nameless
    With which to beat back the stabs of conscience

    We will seek relief in pins and media incantations
    We will sing the hymn of hate
    And burn the Voodoo Doll

    We will accuse everyone
    And anyone
    To avoid accusing ourselves

    While every ounce of petty desire needs to be fulfilled
    And the craving for more titillates this bored and uninspired ….. imagination
    So pushed to the back of our collective mind
    Walks the living, breathing, little brown person …. skeleton
    And every mouthful, so sweet with instant gratification

    Is a mouthful of ash
    In our soul

    Did you forget your soul ?

    It is your very own Voodoo Doll
