Who's the Crook?

by Amethyst

We have more people in jail
than anywhere else
like us in the world
Upon release your world 
is paralyzed
Your opportunities shriveled 
like a limb with polio
No one wants to hire you
No one wants to rent to you
No country wants to allow you passage
You are just getting what you deserve
you savage
Because farting sacks of flesh
say something is wrong-
does that make it wrong?
It was illegal for the colonists
to defy the British.
But they did it.
It was illegal for blacks and whites
to join in marriage.
But people now celebrate it.
Cigarettes are legal.
Marijuana is illegal.
Gun-holding by the convicted reformed
is illegal.
I don't see that in the Constitution
I think that's illegal.
Who is to say what is right and what is wrong?
You descendants of defyers
dare to tell me I'm the criminal?
You brainwashed and pigheaded animals.
