By Sophie Schott


The voice of the people

Powerful words from the powerless

Demanding representation

After years of neglect


Irony comes in the select-

The represented some-

The borders of society subtracted

Others, considered less than none


Refuse to be a silent majority

But wield the deadly weapon of voice

Printed speech, equal freedoms

A holocaust of Choice


Self-evident truths:


Subject to convince and comfort

Our “created” rights


Rights in a legislated society

That no longer values life
