“I Fear for Our Lives and I Fear Your Closed Eyes” by Jill Willcott
I’m in the mood where I come all untied,
I’m in the mood to say things that’ll change people’s minds.
I love you, I swear it, I would never lie…
But I fear for our lives and I fear your closed eyes.
You wear your religion like a war sweater.
You ask for the truth, but you know you could do so much better,
and you sat on your fences, you’ve screamed no retreat…
So now what will your legacy be?
