Fools Of Social Cohesion


Cohesion with no vision
As we went on to fool ourselves
We lay upon the eyes of enemies
Feeding each one with fantasy
Then we named it social cohesion

We distriminated against religion
Hoping to centralise a region
We exploited upon the hybrid races
Hoping to wear an identical uniform

Cohesion with no vision
Thats what i call it because it has no mission
If you insist, will it ever crucify poverty?
Will it ever do away with crime and fraud?

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
