Implications to incite emotional sensations.
For the purpose to invite the igniting,
Of a civil unrest and uncontrollable...
Protesting to suggest,
There has been allowed an undoing...
Of a way of life infested.
And continuing to deceive,
Those who believe...
Their entitled rights to do as they please,
Has begun an unceasing intentional...
Leaving them,
Victims of their own increasing...
Diminishing of a democracy.
They must...
Thoughtlessly destroy,
All diversity that has them annoyed!

Incredible addicting stupidity,
Will only reveal..
Themselves to exposed.
As the very ones to distrust,
Anything they say that proves...
Who it has been,
Fictioning to delude and deny...
Lies to use as alibis.
For them will be a futile fruitless attempt,
To prevent the truth and its evidence.
From what it is.
With threats to weaponize,
Implications and their vacant allegations.
As a defense to promote fear.
When they appear,
To have long been the creators...
Of division, conflict and racial biasness.
Exposing to show and make known,
If it was progress wanted to achieve...
With a forward movement taken,
Away from a stagnant past to have had.
Anyone conscious using common sense,
Can no longer perceive...
Those disrespected,
And historically treated...
Less than human beings.
Could not possibly be the ones to fear.

When the only thing they control,
Is doing their best to survive.
Through obstacles that challenge.
Comparisons to other races made.
And living a daily constant reminder,
Of being identified...
By lies told to tell sold to describe,
Who they are not.

Just to appease the activities of deceivers.
Deceivers seeking credit for destruction!

'How dare they try to destroy our way of life?
When we will prove we can do that better!'

And not only that,
We will also leave them...
To our way of doing things around here!'

Realizing my reputation as an 'overthinker'.
And not to throw a brand new wrench,
In this loosened wheel.
I think...
What we are doing is missing something.
After we do what we do successfully?
Who will be left we can rely upon,
To help us build back...
All the destruction we have done?'

'Oh, my goodness!
Why does always have to be you,
Bringing up details?
And take your thinking cap off.
First we destroy everything to gain power.
Then we will hire all races,
To rebuild back...
That image we had of greatness!
What is it so difficult you don't understand?'

Isn't that,
Where is the progress method in any of this?
How long will it be,
To await for a forgiveness to us given?
It takes many people lifetimes to do that!'

'I can't believe this!
Will someone else explain to this fool,
What we are doing!'
