Because They Say So

You wear their blue mask

Because they say so.

Don’t dare refer to certain groups

By certain words

Because they say so.

Each morning you awaken

Kneel down first

And beg their permission

Each night you go to bed

Kneel down first

And beg their forgiveness.

Lately they’ve shut

Everything down.

You don’t go

Without first

Asking for permission

Because they say so.

It’s never been about

Mere physical Mobility.
