Who are we?
We’re the status quo.
Who are we?
We’re the System,
the line everyone must toe.
The dictum
that divides the world in two.
The “wisdom”
that dissects and destroys truth
in the service of power.
We are not some conspiracy;
we are not some cabal.
We are the structure,
years and years of tradition
codified.
We are the structure,
years and years of oppression
ossified.
We are the structure.

The System that values
some bodies over others.
The System that values
some beliefs over others.
The System that values
some beings over others.

We are the very ideology we uphold,
reified,
in the service of power.

In the service of power.

We are the binary.
It is our hour.
