poetry: a response to shocking reactions on the orlando attacks

Riz Mortiz's poetic response to 'the shocking comments homophobic people have made about those who have died in the Orlando attacks and also those two bastards on sky news that Owen Jones walked out on.'

our society revolves around a
dogmatic
chauvinistic cult
where men
are not manly if they don’t show preference
for ass and tits attached
to a brainless body

society has
no care for
you
you are inbetween the cracks

you distinguish who you are
in your body
and mind
yet this permanent mask
is pasted onto your face
as you live in fear of violence
of exploitation
and of the darkest shades of humanity

you are a monster
you are a sickness
and undeserving of love

the pigs in society
squeal it into your ear

they wish you weren’t human
as you are unfit for their constraints of love
and you express it in ways that panic them
they are pathetically
scared of you

you are corrupt
you are a disease
and full of hedonistic mistakes

you
are
unethically
different

and change is scary
as with change, their reign
will drop
slowly
from them

do not believe they wish to help you
their crocodile smiles
are shit shitting
all over you
...that's if shit could shit

they are wolves dressed as lambs
with an exasperating desire
to detroy you

how dare you threaten the old ways
how dare you threaten
the old ignorance

is it a dark truth
that you will fight your
enitre life
to get your respect?

well fuck them
you are a fighter
you always have been

pin your ears closed
to their
bone violating words

be a moon who
cannot be broken
and can control the tides

be a sun
who is bright
and can radiate our lives

you may fight your whole life
and fight for what is your respect

but you will win

you will

win
