Brother

Criticize me. Brother.

For we are not the same.

Keep that hatred pouring outward,

Because, you are not to blame.

 

You see things in black and white,

For you know not much more.

Keep your blissful ignorance obvious,

Because you have started an uproar.

 

This anger is misdirected,

For generations have put it in you.

Keep your stupidity conscientious,

Because, you will have no breakthrough.

 

Laugh at me brother,

For one of us is much smarter.

Keep up with your own truths,

Because with lies, it is much harder.
