Don’t kid yourself, darling, we’ve seen you before
you come up every generation to ‘reset’ and ‘restore’
you were the baying mob as Joan of Arc burned
you chanted death as Pontus Pilate turned
you rejoiced as the semites were taken away
you did nothing when Lincoln and Martin were slayed
you watched as Gandhi was shot to the ground
what did you do when Rabin was downed
don’t kid yourself, darling, we know who you are
nobody cares to read your memoir
we know how it plays out, your life and your death
living behind masks, fainting from your rancid breath
frothing your opinions about infections and elections
spare me, please., your pompous impressions
there isn’t an original thought in your woke head
you are just about as awake as you are dead
you know everything there is to know
because google and cnn told you so
go someplace else and beat your drum
just because I’m beautiful doesn’t mean I’m dumb – Nausher Nash
