Bridges Not Walls

New spoken word piece that I am going to base a new Nocheez Orchestra Record on:

Bridges Not Walls

We see you your wall, and raise a bridge
You see, we’re hoping you and your believers will fold the devilish hand you are holding

We are betting on decency, empathy, solidarity, cooperation and love

As you attempt to divide and conquer, pitting people against one another so they do not look to see who the engineers of their misery are, those who camouflage themselves in a cloud of confusion and build barricades that block paths to freedom

We, instead, will carry those with heavy burdens over the bridge to safety

You redistribute wealth, basically stealing what little is left of what the oppressed and starving have, all for yourself via all sorts of elaborate schemes, just to feed your glutinous appetite

We will sit down at the dinner table, and provide a warm meal.

You benefit from cronyism, nepotism, and even your sex and skin color. Revealed to you are the secret handshakes that allow entrance into clubs for the “supposed” elites, to raise yourself upon undeserved pedestals and undermine the hopes and dreams of the majority

We instead, will serve those beautiful minds that lead humanity toward progress and unification, to gain the understanding that we are all one.

Though we understand you are monster’s created by a harsh environment and indoctrinated into an inhumane system, we feel much disdain for your perverse behavior. We are no fan of the sociopath, and certainly would never defend the actions of one.

So we plead with you, fold your hand now, and take on the attributes of empathy and understanding. Show decency and join us all in making a better humanity.

But know this, if you continue building your walls, your blockades, all your impediments to freedom, we will have no choice but to intercede, and tear down those obstructions brick by brick.
