Sovereignty

sovereign state

sovereign country

sovereign nation

sovereign province

 

my sovereign mind

my sovereign body

my sovereign home

my sovereign god…well

Really?

life is sacred

and then there’s the slaughter.

a country is sacred

and then there’s the slaughter.

a woman’s body is sacred

            and then there’s the slaughter.

the earth is sacred

            and then there’s the slaughter.

people slaughter.

 

and then claim it as life.

sovereign life.

 

“kill what you love and it will be holy”

tolls humanity’s bell

 

life is a church full of blood

up to now

 

sovereignty-

sacred-

my reign.

 

We don’t really NEED it.

 

WITHOUT SOVEREIGNTY THERE WILL BE WORLD PEACE.

But for now, people seem to need their fences.
