Governments tangle with
Palettes and canvas rendering
Depictions of démodé

Borderlands that compel
Illusions of freedom while
Shrewdly marketing

Servitude as patriotism
Where free speech is only
Free when subjected

To suppressive scrutiny by
Soi-disant moralists who drive
The mocking chants against

Those not so convinced the
Charades of equality should be
Tolerated as agreeable norms

When our brains and dignity
Are surrendered in allegiance
To colored rags with a

Commanded reverence usually
Reserved for gods, as though such
Symbolism is not perishable
