It’s not a time, by Michael Peck

it’s not a time
of world adventure
today those who rule
want censure, restriction
white knuckled control
advertised under the
name of protection
protection from what?
Those others
who don’t think the same
as those whose wants of control
extend beyond their boundaries
no, it’s not a new ideology
it’s just dressed in new polyester uniforms instead of
cotton, wool
the red buttons of destruction
are bigger
the hands who hover above
their power
are puffy, not calloused hands
of privilege
that have never known
the angry knot of hunger
