Poetry – Distraction


They turn us against each other

Brother against brother

To keep the attention

Away from them.

Speaking words most solemnly

Reciting law and verse religiously


Spouting Amen.

Opher 16.6.2018

By turning us against each other they turn the attention away from what they are doing.

Meanwhile they are bleeding us dry.

The establishment have rigged the system in order to funnel profits into the pockets of the rich.

They would rather we didn’t notice.

They would rather we were distracted.

They would rather we fought among ourselves.
