‘The Dead Pig ov Our Democracy’ photo by the incredible @kaylawrenphotographer 2018 assisted by @talli_lyndsey 💜 .... when the news broke of David Cameron’s alleged participation in a hazing/fraternity ritual, that saw him put his penis in the mouth of a severed pigs head, I read an article about how that pigs head/dead pig was Democracy itself & that DC had in essence sacrificed a part of himself at the alter of power & in a shared moment with his fraternity paid the necessary price for becoming a Prime Minister of U.K. government.

But there's nothing there
A thousand tiny hands
Push through holes in a chain link fence
Trying to pluck at its strings
But I can't hear their song
Just animals in cages
With dirty skin
They're right where they belong

I'm feeling all the time
Atonement for crimes
They never committed
But that doesn't matter
Their cries a palliative
For this constant fear
That's become who I am
What I was
No longer looks me in the eye

Languishing in the filth
Of the excess comfort
Of a world that was never mine
Too afraid to open up my eyes
And realize the extent of my loss
And so I keep them shut
Holding in the darkness
The worst of me under lock and key
Doing my best to see anything
But the eyes of children in cages"
