Read Poem: Before Closed Eyes, by Jay Allevi8ed

Can’t you see what’s in front of you?

Past the reality you believe is true?

Behind the Golden Arches and feinted happy meals

Sitting in the dark distracted by a movie reel

Or before a false idol to whom you kneel

Living a robotic life of nine to five

For pieces of paper not worth a dime

Entrusting your life with the “heroic” boys in blue

Who are trained in fact to never trust you

Voting the puppet on the left or the puppet on the right

When both are created distractions to make us fight

You think this “revolution” is a result of a deadly police chokehold?

Your movements are actually led by agents on a Democratic payroll

Tearing down historical statues with a hypocritical mob

Only erases history while also ushering in Martial Law

For the slavery that was an integral part of our history

Paying reparations to black people seemed necessary

Though for those living today who still think it evens the score

After the damage done, reparations are needed no more

So within our politically-correct world, in any future endeavor

Pulling the race card has become revoked and buried forever

Without history, the same mistakes will be made

Take your eyes off the black mirror and see the sick political charade

We think we are moving the world toward improvement

With our rallies, picketing, and cute little movements

LGBT-LMNOP, it makes no difference to me

You’re all being used to implement a new policy

Among its many hidden agendas, lies another evil idea:

That your movement is nothing but a front to legalize pedophilia;

Feeling empowered with #MeToo? I say, Boo Hoo!

We’re all being raped by the same corporate few

Oh, so you were a victim who didn’t stand a chance?

You had every chance to open your eyes at your own ignorance

In Hollywood, no sexual ritual means no role

And these “innocent” Lolita’s did as they were told

All to walk a red carpet and become a household name

Do we really envy those who suck corporate dick for fame?

We need not worry about millions dying overseas

Of poverty, drugs, wars and disease

Oh, but you did your part for third world countries—

Paying an extra dollar for your Starbucks teas?

Still, you sit with your coffees, chatting and laughing

While our children are taken and sold into trafficking

So today, as you enjoy your tea or latte

Remember with each sip,

another child dies today.
