Half the world enslaved

Emile Dubois

Half the world enslaved

Real tears go unseen

Men, women and children prisoners

Fake history has played on our emotive responses

So much to the point that

To be critical is to be exiled

And so the past is cordoned off

Yet we remain subservient to it

No questions can be asked

Just acceptance of a narrative

Unsubstantiated yet always lingering

And now we are the oppressed

For History's alleged oppressed exist

Yet nowhere can they be seen

Maybe it was about land redistribution

The world's been turned upon its head

To see who rules over us

Follow the money

      Unfortunately, since man started to make records, history was always written by the winners, the survivors. The oppressed and downtrodden had no words. Maybe now with the internet and social media anybody can record what is really happening. How that will play out in the future we will see.
