White Glue

White glue closes my eyes, mouth and ears
The unwise monkey said nothing for years
I strut about, in make believe valour
Convince myself I see no colour
Believe myself worthy, support the cause
Take the knee, join the applause
Shake a fist, adopt a pose
But silently, so no-one knows
Violence, mistrust and unfair blame
Thousands perish, I bear no shame
And now I find I CAN’T BREATHE
The weight of this guilt is killing me
