Hands Up Submit


Submitted by Sean R. Ongley

The weight at the top
is not as light
as the spirit from the bottom
whose plight never stops.

A stranglehold is not a class problem.
Education is a class problem.

Ignorance causes men
to kill men in defense of
some unseen monster.

The beast within you
is you.
It carries its own badge
of authority.

It will take you down.
