Poetry Project 2017: 06/17

Headlines: Investigation into London highrise fire begins, suggests austerity measures may share blame. Japan updates rape laws. Canada passes Bill C-16, making it officially illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity or expression.

Villify
Demonize
De-humanize
As soon as you make an “other”,
you begin to lose yourself.
Disconnect 
Seperate from the whole
Stand alone and apart
Who are you making “less than” now?
Social creatures
cannot survive alone,
we need one another
So, if you choose to step away,
to put yourself up and apart,
it is you who should be culled.
As soon as you dehumanize another,
you have become
less than
human
