Privilege

Privilege is often blighted by arrogance
that sounds dull and hollow
-But a bird lost and abandoned
Will make the sweetest sound

This too is an extinction of humanity
Even man is made extinct by man

Everything has to fit into his carryall
Anything that does not fit is hunted down

If a tiger dares to compare itself to man
If it dares to compete with the beauty of men
It is hunted down and killed
It is cornered and bulldozed

The world moves on in this fashion
From Cain to Chicago

The animals we call game are massacred
The weeds we don’t like are poisoned

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
