Who let Detroit down?

Ferriswheelfog
Someone on the television is asking a question
These people…
What they can’t understand, they try to discredit
And, round and round they go
Like a brilliant Ferris Wheel
Shooting fireworks out of ruby lips
Shaking their fists in feigned outrage
What they can’t recover, they try to ruin
By challenging each other in Pig Latin
To discover the nuances hidden
Beneath their spoken word
These people…
What they don’t burn, they hope to bury
Six feet into the ground
And whatever they can’t buy with money
They deem unworthy
Of basic human rights
What they don’t know, they claim doesn’t exist
With no respect for the divine
Standing in front of them
What they haven’t learned, they keep repeating
Like a deafening chant
Without realizing its proper significance
These people…
What they fear in themselves, they fault in others
And whatever they can’t accept as moral
They proclaim as sin
Someone on the television is asking a question
But sadly, it isn’t the right one…
