politics

Are there 2nd class citizens,
Those who belong on paper?
Full rights until someone sees the him?
A name or face marking a second class

Do laws protect unequally?
Do people resent the rule of law
Knowing some do not deserve protection
Feeling that some should be considered first

When does the rule of law become mob rule?
Me and my cousins against the world
So many warlords carving out the family plot
Excluding all who are not near enough cousins

There are rules, and there are actions
One can boast of being liberal on paper
Paper means nothing when ignored
Only that there are fascist who boast of their liberality

For any who wonder, I am commenting on the state of European politics.
