The What and Who of Meandering About

Confession

It's time to 
Confess
The sin of the empire
That cannot understand 
It's own proclivity to
Oppress others 
in the name of
National security

It's time to
Confess
The sin of the institution
That cannot recognize 
It's own tendency to
Keep people in their place 
In the name of
Its vitality

It's time to
Confess 
The sin of the group
That cannot stop
It's own penchant to
Ostracize others 
In the name of 
Tribal purity

It's time to
Confess 
The sin of the individual 
Who cannot avoid
Their own impulse to 
Deny the rights of others
In the name of
Self righteousness
