Anarchy

Put down your prejudice

Put down your desire for revenge

Put down your pride in knowing you’re right

Put down your manifesto

Put down your holy book

Put down that god’s on your side

Put down who was the slave, who was the master

Put down your slogans, your slurs, those signals of virtue

Put down your flags

Put down your envy

Put away the why-fors and whats

Put down what peace will cost

Put away concerns of who started the war

Put down your right to the land

Put away those back room deals

Put down the colour of your skin

Put down the purity of race

Put down your historic superiority

Put down your badge and your riot shield

Put down the divine right of kings

Put down your right to bear arms

For pity’s sake pull up a chair

And just talk to me.
