Donkey Ain’t Just Stupid Horse

Why stereotypes, make paradigms tall
While world accedes, to an asinine creed
To drive a poor heretic, to the wall
Is the new norm, of the civil breed!

How dare we, measure up, to them
Who set the fads, of existence?
We are mere means, to their stratagem
Who gift us elegance, in pittance!

How success is, their prized lapdog
And shame, our reconciled destiny
Our dialogue, against their monologue
How they dictate, their hegemony!

Those virtues, which we, swore by then
Are vices now, in their discourse!
Still pride their ‘vice’, some noble men
For Donkey Ain’t Just Stupid Horse!
