Red Soil, By Brian37

Red Soil, By Brian37

Defending honor
Defending a deity
Defending the state
From blasphemy

All are the same
In human history
Protecting the ego
Not humanity

Stones and sticks
Childish gangs
Raise their fists
Ending in death

Platitudes
And propaganda
Are the seeds
That cruelty plows

Old age preempted
By false nobility
Dying for a cause
Truncates life

Don't pick on me
All labels say
Then bitch themselves
Hypocritically

Taboos are taboo
When we criticize others
Yet Taboos we employ
To protect ourselves

If you are tired
Of the red soil
If you are tired
Of human toil

If harming others
Offends you
Then leave it at words
And protect all words

Protect all protest
And blasphemy
Let all criticize
And freely speak

6 billion
Wont always agree
But our common goal
Should be old age.

Nicely put.
