Hush, human!

Your tongue must not speak

Your larynx must not squeak

Your keyboard must not tweak

Your eyes must not peek.


Because it’s 21st century

and advancement is at its peak

Yet our society is enraged in

bigoted, maniac fury.


So, here’s a tip:

Zip your lips and you will survive.

Open your mouths and you’ll beg to thrive.


It’s high time

To grasp the reality, my dear

That freedom is a crime

and truth is a blasphemy.

That inhumanity is a prime

and justice, a felony.
