Oppression


Oppression
Is not in built
In the human mind
It comes
When corruption
Replaces compassion
In the mind
Power
Arrogance
Greed
Become partners
Have
A cumulative effect
Resulting in
Show of strength
To the weak
And
Down trodden
Just like
On a hot summer
Afternoon
The bright sunlight
Melts the
Cool ice cream

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
