Unclose My Eyes

I don’t want to see no more

The world has bodies at the shore

The starving cry

Bombs still fall

While fools deny & claim God’s all


But I’ve no right to turn away

Or wrong will always have its say

Lying hate will own new youth

With none here left to tell the truth


So fill my eyes with blood & gore

& who kissed who

let outrage pour from pens that dip in blood to make their bread


Speak of facts that simply aren’t

When caught shrug, smile and hold that stance

Enthrall the baying, nodding empty heads


And I’ll sing my song

Until my song is gone

& hope that you’ll see what I’ve said

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
