The Prevent Tragedy

The Prevent Tragedy
Witch hunt against the Muslim community
Police and marginalise the minority
Dissent in our homes and sanctuary
Officially coded prevent strategy
Under the guise of welfare and safety
British values upheld!? or in serious jeopardy
 Prevent? this vague paradoxical spying system
Guilty until proven innocent
Designed to foster disunity
Where crimes of the state go without impunity
A citizen accused of homophobia or misogyny
smeared as the enemy
more newsworthy!?
blamed in entirety
blasted across the satellite and TV screen
She tried to clock his name in infamy
defame to inflame muzlamic mockery
backfires! loses its currency
exploding the prevent absurdity
 Prevent? this strategy the tragedy or fallacy
down in history as the great hypocrisy
whilst the elite sit and sip the blood of her progeny
teach the child tolerance and equality
when she by the sword spreads democracy
the divide and conquer puppetry
 We only resented brutish foreign policy
Misrepresent me! Votes no, my civic duty
Freedom of speech overruled she’s radicalised
matter of fact the thinker practices empathy
Exercises her personal autonomy, unlike
the lay-man, he follows the status quo in apathy
 …
You dare to debunk such policies
Demand transparency
Resist monopolising hegemonies
Uprising, by way of our civilised democracy
Or so it seems
one’s better off indulging in debauchery
No! never question the authority
in matters like these
Are you brainwashed? extremist? potential terrorists?
 …
We simply want to practice our liberties:
Diffusing harmony, promoting unity
building bridges and secure communities
Not just on our doorstep, but globally
We are one-of-another, from the womb of eve
And this we will continue in extremities
whilst the flames engulf our tongues
and runs riot through our bodies.

I wrote this back in October 2015 (after some deep feelings of vexation and frustrations at the govnt initiative) but tweaked it up a little today, to add to my blog. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing!
