A goliath stands and decides fate
Based on no more than twisted perception
Words on a page and meaningless data
No human element to the situation
Behind the word terror they hide
Segregated and divided from the people they fear
Safe in the bubble they sit at peace
No conflict or argument will they hear
A message imparted by mouths not their own
Forced through contract to speak what they are told
Unable to shy from the eyes they must meet
To their own thoughts and rage they must hold
Turned from tolerance by employers will
Do they then sit guilty of the message relayed
Options not presented to make a real choice
Yet the memory of the look received may never fade
Anger and frustration now boil too a fury
But is it aimed at the order or the weakness that obeyed
With action now taken the point seems lost
No salvation sought as no recompense can be made
